09/18/2010 – The women's cross country team began their season with a third place finish at the Calvin Knight Invitational. Aquinas, who is currently ranked 21st in the nation, was only outdistanced by Ohio Northern (#14 DIII) and Calvin College (#15 DIII) in the 16 team field.
Rachael Steil started her college career with a bang as she led the Saints with a personal best (18:07) second place finish. Providing great support up front was Katy Cramer (19:15) and Alina Dhaseleer (19:16), who both recorded top twenty finishes for the Saints. The top five scoring spots were rounded out by Megan Byrne (20:08) and Alicia Boynton (20:10).
Aquinas will return to action on October 2nd as they travel to Chicago to compete in the Sean Earl Invitational hosted by Loyola University.
