The Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College cross country team had its first meet of the season on Sept. 3. It was scheduled at the home course but the recent fire in Guerin Hall forced the teams to run at a different location.
SMWC and rival Brescia University competed at Lavern Gibson Cross Country Course at Indiana State University. The Pomeroys competed against Division One schools such as ISU, University of Illinois, and Ball State University.
A total of 45 women competed at Lavern Gibson. The top runners for SMWC were sophomore Stephanie Runyon, freshman Logan Fry, and sophomore Katherine Williams.
The team finished strong and for the complete team results, see the sidebar on this page.
The Pomeroy runners competed at the University of Notre Dame’s National Catholic Invitational on Friday. The results were not in at press time. Look for them on The Woods’ website at www.thewoodsnewspaper.com.
SMWC will compete in the Otterbein Invitational on Saturday in Westerville, Ohio.
