Macaulay Porter Leads GW Women's Cross Country to 6th at A-10 Championship
Senior Finishes 10th Overall to Earn All-Conference Honors
MECHANICSVILLE, Va. - In near ideal running conditions under a sunny sky at Pole Green Park, senior Macaulay Porter led the George Washington women's cross country team to a sixth place finish out of 14 competing schools at the 2016 Atlantic 10 Championship.
Porter smoked her previous career best 5K time of 18:03, which came at the 2013 Championship, by running a 17:38.4 clip to take 10th overall out of 131 finishers.
Porter was followed across the finish line by junior Miranda DiBiasio (30th in 18:07.8), sophomore Halley Brown (33rd in 18:14.5), sophomore Madison Yerke (39th in 18:20.1), the freshman tandem of Gabby Vlattas (50th in 18:27.0) and Suzanne Dannheim (52nd in 18:28.0), senior Ariana North (88th in 19:06.5) and sophomores Kelli Stetson (98th in 19:14.2), Lauren Anderson (113th in 19:51.5) and Lesley Fatica (115th in 19:56.2). In addition to the freshmen who were competing in their first A-10 Championship, and the All-Conference performance by Porter, Brown also ran a career best 5K time.
"I'm proud of Macaulay," said Head Coach Terry Weir. "After earning All-Conference two years ago but not last year, this was a great way for her to finish in her last A-10 Championship race. Our young runners stepped up today and ran well, and Halley Brown really came through taking almost 40 seconds off her career best time."
Massachusetts' junior Heather MacLean finished first overall in 17:06.8, while Richmond took the team crown with 77 points. Dayton and Duquesne tied with 88 points, followed by Davidson in fourth (109), Massachusetts in fifth (150), GW in sixth (160), Saint Joseph's (178), Fordham (234), Saint Louis (235), VCU (245), Mason (260), La Salle (297), Rhode Island (322) and St. Bona (466).
