 BRUNSWICK, Maine – Taking on several nationally ranked schools amongst the 18 schools that traveled to Bowdoin College to compete at the Maine State Championship, Husson women's cross country took home 14th place with 440 points. This meet was the first time any of the freshmen had ever competed in a 6k while the upperclassmen have not competitively raced a 6k since the NCAA DIII Northeast Regional Championship last season. 

Husson saw seven Eagles finish in the top-100 while taking on a total of 247 runners. Junior Lindsey Joliat was one of two upperclassmen to rank a scoring spot for the Eagles, posting the best time for Husson at the meet, she paced a 7:01 minute mile with an overall time of 26:09 (80th). 

Barely two seconds apart, junior Julia Glisson and freshman Isabelle Jackson raced in for 82nd and 83rd with times of 26:37 and 26:39. 

The next four Eagles to cross the finish line, were separated by less than a minute of trail between them as they captured 97th, 98th, 99th, and 100th. Leading the four freshman, Mariah Davis earned her first points as an Eagle pacing a 7:30 mile, she crossed in at 27:59. Danielle Scott followed in at 28:08, while Renee Dostal posted a time of 28:32 and Emily Banks captured a 28:40 6k. 

The Eagles will prepare for their annual trek North to Canada to compete at the RSEQ AUS Interlock Meet on Saturday, October 6th.
