This weekend, the Lords and Ladies cross-country teams joined 31 men’s and 27 women’s teams at the Pre-National Meet in Wilmington, Ohio, in which well over 300 runners competed in each event.

The Ladies took 16th place, while the Lords claimed 25th.

Sam Lagasse ’16 and Nat Fox ’16 were the Lords’ standard-bearers. Lagasse’s time of 25:36.51 was good for 84th place and, though he finished just 13 seconds later, Fox earned 102nd.

Molly Hunt ’18 maintained her position as the top runner for the Ladies, finishing 76th in the field, with Susannah Davies ’18 in 86th.

Head Coach Duane Gomez called this season a “rebuilding year,” because both teams lost many athletes to graduation. He said he considered keeping the team at home this weekend, but after consulting with the team captains, he elected to compete at Pre-Nationals.

“We didn’t finish that high in the standings, but we learned a lot about ourselves,” Gomez said.
