BIDDEFORD, Me. – The Lady Hornets ran to sixth place with senior Allynne O'Hearn (Pelham, N.H.) pacing them and completing the 5-kilometer course in 23:33 for 25th place overall. Junior Cassie Tricou (New Haven, Vt.) was second for the team with a time of 24:08 while sophomore teammate Ani Pytlewski (Putney, Vt.) covered the 5K course in 24:09.
"I saw some very good signs as well as some things we need to work on over the coming weeks," said Head Coach Chris Ummer. "Both teams will need to close the gap between their team's top runner, Grant and O'Hearn, but this is often the case early on in the season as teammates are not all on the same fitness page."
The Hornets are next in action Saturday Sept. 17 when they host the Hornet Invitational on family/alumni weekend.
