The Defenders placed just outside of the top 10, in 11th place out of the 29 teams competing. Dordt totaled 351 points in today's race that featured several teams from NCAA D-II and NCAA D-III.
Jessica Kampman was the first Defender to complete the 6K course and placed 38th out of 327 runners with a time of 23:44. Kampman has been the top Dordt runner in each of the three meets this fall.
Taylor Anema was next Dordt runner to finish, placing 70th overall, followed closely by Brenna Tolkamp (74th - 24:15) and Eden Winslow (76th - 24:16).
Sophomores Lucy Borkowski and Margaret Myskowski crossed the finish line within seconds of each other and placed 93rd and 95th.
"The Defender women raced strong today," said Dordt Head Coach Nate Wolf. "On a cool rainy day that felt like a great day for cross country, our women packed well. Jessica Kampman led the women with a strong race, and she was supported by a tight pack of Taylor Anema, Brenna Tolkamp, and Eden Winslow. These three ladies crossed the line within six seconds and seven places of each other. Finishing 11th as a team, being the top NAIA women’s team, and beating a tough and ninth-ranked Indiana Wesleyan team was a great result for the women today."
Dordt will next compete in its home meet on Oct. 9.
