Women’s cross country garners fifth win

The women’s cross country team won The Greensboro Invitational, Sept.28 in North Carolina without their No. 1 runner, senior Elaine Koenig, who was ill. Junior Anna Moore powered to a second place finish over the 5K course in 19:12. She had maintained second place since the opening mile, and she was all kick, holding off a thundering Marshall University runner at the end. Senior Erin Engel finished eighth in 19:58. Tracy Inman (Fifteenth in 20:36), Emily Sand (Twenty-fifth in 21:00), and Lisa Sand (Thirty-sixth in 21:27) filled out the rest of the top five.

This was only the fifth meet victory in the history of women’s cross country at NKU. The race was mixed between Div.I , II, III and NAIA teams, with the Div. I teams in a separately scored division. The women’s effort would have earned a fourth place finish if the divisions would have been scored together
