DiBiasio Paces GW Women's Cross Country at Paul Short Invite
Junior Sets New 6K PR to Lead Colonials
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Junior Miranda DiBiasio placed 51st out of a massive field of 404 competitors with a new personal record at the 6,000-meter distance to lead the George Washington women's cross country team at Saturday's Paul Short Invitational.
GW tied for 23rd place as a team out of 45 programs, posting 21 dual victories, on a soggy morning on the campus of Lehigh University.
DiBiasio navigated the 6,000-meter course in a personal-best time 20:53 and was the top Atlantic 10 student-athlete performer on the day. She shattered her previous record by 1 minute and 13 seconds. Her previous best of 22:06 was set at last year's Paul Short Invite.
Senior Macaulay Porter was GW's next harrier across the finish line with a time of 21:17 for 89th place. The performance was also a new personal record for Porter, who improved upon her 2015 Paul Short time by 14 seconds.
Freshman Gabriella Vlattas put forth her best 6K effort of the season on Saturday, finishing in 21:56 for 173rd place.
Senior Ariana North (22:10, 198th), sophomore Halley Brown (22:18, 211th), freshman Suzanne Dannehim (22:20, 215th) and sophomore Madison Yerke (22:43, 258th) rounded out GW's scoring runners on Saturday.
Brown's performance was a new personal record by two minutes and 17 seconds.
GW is scheduled to split its squad and send teams to both the Leopard Invitational (Easton, Pa.) and Princeton Invitational (Princeton, N.J.) on Saturday, October 15.
