Lisa Davies is one of two two-time All-American runners in women's cross country along with fellow inductee Star Emmert. As a two-time team captain, Davies helped lead the 2008 team to its first-ever appearance at the NAIA National Championships. In that 2008 season, Davies placed 17th overall at the NAIA meet as she finished in 17:54 with the second-best time in program history. Her 17th-place finish is still tied for the highest place by an individual in program history at the NAIA Championships. Her finish helped the Bears finish 13th as a team which is still tied for the best finish by a women's cross country team at Shawnee State. Davies also finished 19th at the 2007 NAIA Championships to earn her first All-American accolade while also qualifying as an individual during the 2006 season.
Davies is the school record holder in the 5,000-meter cross country race with a mark of 17:53 that she posted at the Ohio University Invitational on September 27, 2008. In addition to being the fastest individual in program history, she still holds 11 of the fastest 25 times in program history. At the conference level, she was first-team All-AMC in her final two seasons after earning second-team All-AMC honors in her sophomore season. In her cross country career, Davies captured six individual race titles which are two more than any other runner in program history. She was a two-time Shawnee State Invitational Champion and won four different races during her junior season. Davies also holds the school record for the 5,000 meters in outdoor track & field which she set when the team competed as a club program.
