HAVERFORD, Pa. - The Owls cross country team got in one final tune up earlier Friday afternoon before next weekend's Centennial Conference Championship meet. Bryn Mawr traveled just down the road to Haverford for a dual meet against the Fords. Anna Kyle and Dorian Alexis led the way for the Owls, but there were plenty of other notable performances on the afternoon for Bryn Mawr.
Kyle took second place overall in the three mile event, crossing the line in a time of 19:14.0. Alexis took fourth place behind Kyle in a time of 20:00.1. Kyle's time is the seventh-fastest in program history at the Haverford 3-mile course, while Alexis' is the 14th fastest.
Marien Richardson and Charlotte McDermott were the next two Owls across the line, locking down their normal 3/4 spots for Bryn Mawr. Richardson came home in eighth in a time of 21:17.0, while McDermott posted a 21:39.4 to take 11th.
Behind that first-year duo, there was a good bit of movement in the Bryn Mawr pack. Corinne Hartshorne crossed the line just behind McDermott in a breakout race for her, her first time finishing in the #5 spot for the Owls. Hartshorne finished in a time of 21:51.1 to help mark her best race of the season, the perfect time to add depth to the Bryn Mawr squad headed into conferences next week.
Amelia McDonnell came across next for Bryn Mawr, taking 13th place in a return to action this week. Sarah Keane also returned for the Owls in a tempo run, doing a great job of setting a pace for her fellow Owls to follow.
There were several other breakthrough races on the day. Evelyn Fort took 14th overall in a time of 22:04.2. A few spots down, Camryn Karis-Sconyers and Brooke Barton crossed the line back-to-back in times of 22:53 and 23:23.
