CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr cross country team was back on the course earlier Saturday afternoon, as the Owls capped off their season at the NCAA Mideast Regional hosted this year by DeSales. Anna Kyle led the way for Bryn Mawr in this one, as she finished in the top third of a packed field on a windy and cold day in eastern Pennsylvania.
On a very challenging course this year, Kyle ran a very solid race from beginning to end, ultimately posting a time of 25:20. That was good enough for 101st place in the 341-runner field.
First-year Emma Fiorini has acquitted herself tremendously all season long, and that continued in this afternoon's event. Fiorini was the second-fastest finisher for the Owls on the day, taking 169th with a time of 26:29.
Bryn Mawr senior Haley Varnum capped off her cross country career with the Owls by finishing as the third-fastest member of the squad today, coming across the line in a time of 27:10. Sophomores Nevada Powers and Emily Haller crossed the line virtually side-by-side to round out the top five for the Owls, finishing in times of 28:09 and 28:10 on the day.
Overall, Bryn Mawr finished in 35th place as a team, beating out several notable squads from around the region. The Owls performance put them ahead of teams from Arcadia, Alvernia, Wilkes, and Lycoming, to name a few.
Today's results close the book on the 2018 Bryn Mawr cross country season, but many of these Owls will roll right into Indoor Track & Field as the winter campaign spools up.
