NEWARK, New Jersey – On Saturday morning the women’s cross country competed at Branch Brook Park in the Metropolitan Conference Cross Country Championships. Despite sitting out some key runners, the women raced to a strong sixth place finish overall as a team.
Leading the way was freshman Mallory Holloway, who finished in 12th place with a personal best time of 18:30.58 to earn First Team All-Met Honors.
On the day, 10 women competed for Marist and the results were six personal bests, three collegiate bests, and one season best time.
“I am so extremely proud of how well our women executed today out there on the course. After a sub-par showing at Paul Short last week, it was so nice to see the girls bounce back and have their best team performance of the season,” said Head Coach Chuck Williams. “In our sport we are constantly striving to get five women to put together their best races all on the same day, but to have all 10 women achieve that today gives us a great deal of confidence as we prepare for the MAAC championships.”
Next up for the women’s cross country team will be the Vermont Fall Foliage Invitational on Sunday, Oct. 15 in St. Albans, VT.
