The Women's Cross Country team competed on their home course for the Cardinal Invitational on Friday, October 14. The course was very challenging with a lot of up hill terrain. Which made times a little slower on the day.
The Cardinals were led by Chloe Gunter who finished 5th overall and was just 4 seconds off of her personal record on the very challenging course. Mary Salem crossed the finish line in 24:54 and finished in the top 10 while running another season best on the year. Alison Doerr finished right behind her in 11th place with a time of 25:10. Seraphina Ferrell was the fourth and final finisher for the team in 12th place with a time of 29:37. Madisyn Flamini started for the team but had to drop out due to injury after the first mile.
With only having only four finishers in the race, the Cardinals would not register a team score. The team will be back in action on Saturday, October 22 in Grand Rapids at Riverside Park for the NAIA Great Lakes Challenge.
