Women's Cross Country Improves Times in Canada

FREDERICTON, New Brunswick – Competing against two top-ten nationally ranked teams in Canada including 11 other schools, the Husson women's cross country team came home with 12th place from 329 points after trekking to Canada for the annual RSEQ AUS Interlock Meet. Several returners made impressive improvements on their times from the previous year competing on the exact same course while as a team, the Eagles cut down over two minutes from their average 6k time from 30:09 to 27:55. 

With the best time of the day for Husson, Lindsey Joliat paced herself for a 26:02 6k which placed her 58th and cut off nearly 60 seconds from last year's competition. 

Julia Glisson and Isabelle Jackson passed through next in 63rd and 67th place with times of 27:34 and 28:11. The remaining Eagles flocked in all at once as Katherine Camire and Danielle Scott led the charge to close out the scoring in 70th and 71st just seconds apart at 28:52 and 29:00. Camire truly pushed herself shaving off over three minutes from her time last year. Fellow returners, Jessica Dessert and Amanda Marcus also saw improvements as they each cut off one to two minutes on their times. 

The Eagles will have three weeks to continuing preparing for the North Atlantic Conference Championship hosted at Maine Maritime Academy on Sunday, October 28th.
