Marquette Men 27th, Women 37th at NCAA Pre-Nationals
Oct. 16, 2010
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - The Marquette University men's and women's cross country teams competed Saturday afternoon at the NCAA Pre-National Invitational in Terre Haute, Ind. at the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course. The men placed 27th overall in the blue race, while the women were 37th in their own blue race.
"The men ran pretty well," head coach Mike Nelson said. "They were in the mix with some really good teams, but if you don't have a front runner in the lead pack you can get thrown to the back quickly. There were 100 men crossing within a minute so it was a loaded and tough field."
Bekki Misanin (22:27.2, 183rd) and Carly Windt (22:54.4, 218th) rounded out the women's top five. Carly Condon and Kristin Pelzel also participated for the Golden Eagles.
Both squads will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 30 at the BIG EAST Cross Country Championships, hosted by Syracuse in Jamesville, N.Y.
