For the second consecutive race, Noonan broke the previous school record for the fastest time by a Colonial. At the Atlantic 10 Championships this weekend, Noonan finished the 5k course in 18:19.20, which placed her seventh out of 138 runners. The finish earned her a spot on the Atlantic 10 All Conference Team, and was the fastest time ever by a Colonial at the conference championships. Two weeks earlier, she won her first career race by establishing a Colonial record by running a 18:14.80 at the Carnegie Mellon invitational. The previous record was held by Lauren Edwards, who ran a 18:25.33 to finish sixth at the 1995 Atlantic 10 Championships.
