Cross country teams run hot in cold
Competing in their last meet before the Centennial Conference Championships, the Mules took a step forward at the Lafayette’s Leopard Invitational.
The women’s team placed fifth in a field of nine teams, finishing behind two Division I and two Division II schools and beating two Division I and two Division III schools.
The men’s were eighth out of 12, beating the three other Division III teams in the meet and one Division I school.
Both teams responded very well in poor weather conditions and also responded well having had two tough weeks of workouts since their last meet. The team's performance was the best of the season, which bodes well for the upcoming CC meet and NCAA Mideast Regional.
Junior Kate Mahoney and sophomore Melissa Ugelow came in 23rd and 28th , respectively, for the women in a field of 100 runners, most from higher divisions. Junior Kim Bier (above) also finished in the top half, placing 50th.
Junior Bobby Torphy (22nd) and senior Patrick Thornton (34th) were the top men’s finishers.
