Wilson finishes sixth overall in white race to pace Green Terror

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Lindsay Wilson (Catonsville, Md./Seton Keough) finished sixth overall to lead McDaniel to a 17th-place finish at the prestigious Brooks Paul Short Run hosted by Lehigh in women's cross country action on Friday.

Wilson completed the 6,000-meter course in a time of 22:46 to lead the Green Terror in the white race as part of the three-race format that placed teams in races based on expected times. The 36-team white race featured teams from Division II, Division III and junior colleges. McDaniel accumulated 426 points, averaging 25:06 as a team to finish 12th among no fewer than 22 Division III teams. Swarthmore won the race with 92 points.

Wilson's time of 22:46 was the Green Terror's fourth-fastest time at the event on a wet and muddy course that had already featured seven races on Friday after heavy rains blanketed the region on Thursday.

Missy Black (West Grove, Pa./Bishop Shanahan) and Emily Peoples (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) each finished in the top 80 of the 280-runner field. Black crossed the line 73rd in a time of 24:49 while Peoples was 79th in a time of 24:57.

Becky Kaler (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) and Jennifer Garnett (Los Altos, Calif./Homestead) rounded out the scoring runners for McDaniel, finishing 142nd (26:28) and 147th (26:30), respectively.
