BRUNSWICK, Maine - Battling against seven nationally ranked teams and 57 teams overall, the Husson women's cross country team powered through the dismal weather to finish out their season strong in 50th place at the NCAA DIII Northeast Regional Championship.

Having competed on this 6k course at Bowdoin College in the beginning of the season at the Maine State Championship, four runners saw improvement to their previous times with Lindsey Joliat crossing the finish line first for the Eagles. Joliat was the 218th runner to come in out of 399 competitors, as she shaved off 46 seconds from her previous time to pace a 6:49 mile for an overall time of 25:26.

Just ten seconds away from her best time, Julia Glisson sprinted across at 26:47, crossing the finish line alongside four other runners trying to best the other by a tenth of a second.

Next in was Isabelle Jackson finishing just under the 28-minute mark at 27:59. Less than 30 seconds behind her, Emily Banks nearly closed in on Renee Dostal who was two strides ahead. Dostal cut off eight seconds from her first time this season for a 28:24 while on her tail, Banks captured a time of 28:26 to shave 14 seconds.

Closing out the competition for Husson, Katherine Camire raced in at 28:46 and Danielle Scott finished with a time of 29:26.

The Eagles conclude their 2018 season on a strong note as Winter begins to settle in.
