TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Greenville women’s cross country competed at the Rose-Hulman Gibson Family Collegiate Invitational Sat Oct. 9 in what would prove to be a record setting day.
Although the Lady Panthers only participated four women in the contest, they had no shortage of firepower, finishing with the number one and number two runners in the competitive field of 117 women. This marks the first time in school history that the women’s cross country team has posted the top two finishers.
The Lady Panther’s top spot was again claimed by Senior Michelle Sutton (Jackson, Mich./Jackson) who won the individual title with a time of 23:08 on the 6K course. Her time, which was the seventh best 6K time in Greenville College history, was 20 seconds ahead of the second place runner.
Finishing number two on the day was freshman Aubree Schreder (Waterloo, Ill./Waterloo). Schreder posted a time of 28:35 at a pace of 6:18 per mile, and boasted a gap of over seven seconds between herself and the third place runner.
The women will travel to Evansville, Ind. next Saturday for the Evansville Invitational where they will look to maintain their mid season success.
