Martin Luther Invite

October 11, 2003

(New Ulm, Minnesota) The team returned to the scene of their triumphant double win of a year ago.

The Women's course was lengthened to 6k this year but the Lady Defenders were up to the challenge of a longer race and the pouring rain and again came home with the 1st place trophy.

Three of our Women were in the top seven: Tanya Holtrop, Kate Reinsma and Leah Kooiker. Leah seems to improve with every race.

The Men lost out to the home team but took second among the eight colleges present.

Senior Jeff Taylor led all Dordt runners and joined Tim Eisenga as a top-seven award winner. Taylor has turned in many sterling performances in his four years on the team but oddly enough it was not until this race that he has led all Dordt runners. Mark Miedema proved his previous performance was no fluke as he again ran a great race.
