The women's cross country team traveled to Shelbyville, Indiana for the second annual Run with the Lions cross country meet. Due to excessive heat, the coaches decided to shorten the meet to a 5k race and have the men and women run at the same time.
The women performed exceptionally well today as three runners finished in the top 10. Sophomore Maria Waters came in second overall and finished with a time of 21:25. Junior Julia Cason and Sophomore Vanessa Cappel finished in eight and ninth place with times of 24:29 and 24:36 respectively.
Given the weather conditions, the women were able to perform extremely well. The women will plan to continue their success in the next race on Friday, October 13 in Wilmington, Ohio for the Jenna Strong Cross Fall Classic.
