cross country teams in top 5

Her previous best in a regulation-length race was seventh at the Lehigh Valley Championships earlier this season. Freshman Abby Simons also placed in the top 20 of the 203-runner field, coming in 17th.

The men might have won the event for the second year in a row, but they held out one of their top two runners. The Mules were fourth, 15 points behind the first-place team.
