WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - Middlebury College won the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) meet for a third year in a row with a total of 25 points. Williams College placed second with 40 points and Tufts finished third with 162 points.

From the 11 a.m. start, four Middlebury runners and Emily D'Addario of William Smith led the pack followed by a pack of seven Williams women. Claire McIlvennie of Middlebury won the race in 22:34 with teammate Hannah Meier finishing second in 22:41. D'Addario placed third and finished just one second behind Meier.
