There were 67 runners in the women's event.
"Kayla ran very well, Cassie had some trouble today, if she would been able to run her normal race we maybe get fourth, but our ladies ran pretty well," said Rio Grande head coach Bob Willey. "Kayla was all-conference so that is a positive, we're pleased for her."
The MSC All-Academic team was announced as well and both Lower and Mattia were named to the squad. "As I said with the men, this is really what's it's all about, both Cassie and Amy are tremendous student/athletes and well deserving of this honor," Willey said. "I'm very happy for them."
