McDaniel mostly long half of Long-Short

NEWVILLE, Pa. – Emily Peoples (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) crossed 76th overall to lead McDaniel at the highly-competitive Dickinson Long Short Invitational in women's cross country action on Saturday.

The Green Terror did not register a team score in both events, running 10 of its 11 entries in the 6,000-meter long course – the same course which will host the 2011 Centennial Conference championship on Oct. 29. In the scoring for the 6K race only, McDaniel was 18th with 185 points.

Dickinson won the combined event with 62 points.

Peoples finished with a time of 26:22 on the muddy, hilly course.

Missy Black (Atglen, Pa./Bishop Shanahan) finished 92nd in a time of 26:46 while Becky Kaler (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) crossed 108th in a time of 27:07.

Avalon McOmber (Lexington, Va./Rockbridge County) and Laura Shinn (Weehawken, N.J./Pennington) were 136th (28:48) and 140th (28:52), respectively.

Sarah Kulp (Amherst, Mass./Amherst) was the lone McDaniel entry in the 4,000-meter race, finishing 156th in a time of 22:09. Without a team score in both events, the Green Terror was not eligible for the combined team score.

McDaniel returns to action at the prestigious Paul Short Run hosted by Lehigh, site of the 2011 NCAA Division III Mideast Regional meet, on Friday.
