DiBiasio Places First as GW Women's Cross Country Ties for First at Salty Dog Invite
Sophomore Tops Field for First Collegiate Victory
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Sophomore Miranda DiBiasio finished in first place overall out of 75 competitors to lead the George Washington women's cross country team to a first-place tie out of six competing teams at the Salty Dog Invitational on Saturday morning at the United States Naval Academy Golf Course.
DiBiasio's victory marks the first of her career and the first for a GW harrier since then-graduate student Angela Ryck won the 6K Catholic Invitational on September 7, 2013.
George Washington and Navy both tallied 40 points to tie for first place in the six-team field. Maryland finished in third place with 85 points, followed by American (86), Loyola (Md.) (126) and Bowie State (185).
DiBiasio finished the course in 22:51.62, a full 10 seconds ahead of the field, to lead a total of five Colonials in the top-15.
Junior Ariana North was next across the finish line for the Colonials, finishing with a personal-best 6K cross country time of 23:18.64 for fifth place. She bested her previous career mark of 23:26 set at last year's Princeton Invitational by eight seconds.
Freshman Rachael Hughen rounded out GW's top-15 finishers by navigating the course in 24:01.15 for 14th place.
The Colonials will be idle next weekend before co-hosting the DCXC/GW Invitational on Saturday, September 26 at Kenilworth Park in Washington, D.C.
