Wilmington, Del. - The opening meet for the 2016 Women's Cross Country season was hosted by Wilmington University and took place at Carousel Park in Delaware.
The weather was an ideal 65 degrees with a comfortable breeze and the 5k (3.1 miles) course featured memorable uphills, strong downhills, and rolling terrain. Senior runner Danielle Wilson led the Lady Warriors through the challenging course and finished in 5th place in a field of 43. Trisha Frazer, also a senior, followed close behind and finished in 7th place. Rounding out the top 4 were Sydney Spaschak in 23rd place and Lydia Chepkieng in 34th place.
The Warriors will return to competition on Saturday, September 10th, for the Philadelphia University Metropolitan Invite hosted by Philadelphia University, to preview their conference course at Belmont Plateau.
