Women’s cross country seventh in HCAC meet
The women’s cross country team finished seventh in the nine-team Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship, hosted by Manchester College. The men’s team posted an incomplete score due to not having enough healthy runners to field a complete team. Both teams are led by head coach Toby Carrigan.
First-year runner Betsy Heines was Transy’s top performer in the HCAC meet, finishing 26th in a time of 25 minutes, 24 seconds over the 5,000-meter course. Senior Mallory Harlow took 32nd place with 26:07.4. The women tuned up for the conference championship with an 11th place finish in the Manchester Invitational, paced by Heines’s 45th place showing in 25:38.
The men’s team finished 10th in the Berea College Invitational as senior Patrick Spencer led the way for Transy over the 8,000-meter course with a time of 32:49.95, good for 44th overall.
