Senior Juliana Stern, appearing in her first meet in over two years, turned in a fantastic performance as she notched a sixth-place finish in 23:03. She was followed less than a second later by freshman Caroline Wolfe in seventh place overall.
Senior Julia Weir took 14th place after finishing in 23:23 while freshman Katie Bishop followed in 24:14 to take 30th place. Sophomores Aubrey Gunnels (42nd, 24:33), Erica Halvorson (48th, 24:43) and Kathryn Luker (51st, 24:51) also contributed to the Colonials best team finish since a fourth-place showing at the 2009 Mount St. Mary's Duals.
