Brunswick, ME - The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon women's cross country team took 53rd place out of 57 full teams at the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championships hosted by Bowdoin College on Saturday morning.
The Hornets were led by the 2018 North Atlantic Conference Runner and Rookie of the Year, Zosia Prince (Sutton, VT), with a 167th place finish (391 total runners). Prince covered the wet and muddy 6K course in 24:49, which was a personal best. Prince was the first NAC runner to finish on the day. Prince was followed by sophomore Rachel Valentine (Clarkdale, AZ), senior Alesha Donovan (Northwood, NH), junior Isabelle Tuggle (Norwich, VT), and senior Sarah Levesque (North Smithfield, RI), who completed the scoring for the Hornets.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology won the regional championship with a score 87 points. Kaitlyn Mooney of the United States Coast Guard Academy took individual honors.
"Not the ideal race conditions we were hoping for." stated Hornet Head Coach Chris Ummer. "The team was focused on finishing the season with some fast results on this course. Zosia did run to a PR, but the conditions kept her and her teammates from the goals we had set. All-in-all it was a good finish to the season."
