Redshirt-sophomore Olivia Sommers improved her 6K mark by three seconds with a time of 24:23, while sophomore Jade Fry rounded out the Raider scoring runners with a 6K season best of 24:55.

Complete results were still being verified Saturday evening due to an issue with the timing system and one of the finishing mats used at the conclusion of the race.

The Raiders are back at it next weekend at Bloomsburg, previewing the course that will host the conference championships at the end of the month.
