FROSTBURG, Md. – The York College women's cross country team came in third place out of eight teams at the Frostburg State University Invitational Saturday morning.
The Green and White finished with a total of 69 points. Finishing ahead of York was Gettysburg in first with 25 points and Mary Washington in second with 52 points. Other schools competing included Salisbury, St. Mary's, Marymount, Frostburg State and Garrett College.
Head Coach Erick Camodeca said that he had the women do a workout prior to the race so that they could push themselves through fatigue during the first mile and settle in to the race.
The Spartans responded well to the new approach. Jess Miller (Dauphin, Pa./Bishop McDevitt) was the first finisher for the Green and White. Miller came in seventh place with a time of 25:32.76. Next up for York was Tuesday Wilson (York, Pa./Eastern York) with a time of 25:56.80 followed close behind my Misty Parshall (Dover, Pa./Homeschooled) finishing in 25:59.55. Nicole Danielewicz (Bensalem, Pa./Nazareth Academy) crossed the finish line in 26:09.03 placing 17th. Caroline DeLany (Frederick, Md./ Tuscarora) was the next finisher for the Spartans with a time of 26:36.83. Rounding out the scoring for the Green and White were Jenna Roberts (Stewartstown, Pa./Kennard-Dale) finishing in 26:52.19 and Rachel Berninger (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) with a time of 27:19.46.
"Our top four women were on point today and did a great job," said Camodeca. "Jenna and Rachel were also really impressive, our second pack really stepped up today."
The Spartans return to action Saturday at 11:00 am for the Dickinson College Long/Short Invitational.
