The runners who ran on Saturday include Abby Grater, who finished 25th, Emily Lewis who finished 30th, and Lucy Roth, who finished 48th.

The next meet is Wednesday, October 1st, in St. James, also a hilly and strenuous course, a lot like Jefferson Barracks, which proved to be a worthy challenge to the cross country team. -by Alex Madden
