Freshman Emma Deshaies and senior Colleen Coon finished within four seconds of each other along with a mass of other athletes. Deshaies posted a time of 23:44 – good for 87th place – while her older counterpart was the last Plattsburgh State runner in the top-100 with a 92nd place time of 23:48.
The Cardinals amassed 450 points in the race, and finished just three spots behind SUNYAC for SUNY Cortland. The Red Dragons and the Cardinals were two of five SUNYAC teams competing in Bethlehem, but were the only two in the top 15.
Up next for the Cardinals is a trip to Saratoga, N.Y., to take part in the Saratoga Invitational hosted by RPI. The meet is scheduled to begin at noon on Saturday, October 6.
