The host Waterloo Warriors won the event with a score of 41 points, with Laurentian close behind at 43 points. The Voyageurs placed ahead of York, Laurier, Brock and Trent.
Rookie Samantha Edwards led the way, running to a fourth-place finish and a personal best time of 18:59 over the five-kilometre course. Gracie Tetzlaff placed seventh in 19:26; Katie Wismer was 13th in 19:44; rookie Coralea Kappel ran a personal best time of 19:49 to place 15th; Adrienne Wilson was 18th in 20:03; Jenna Thornber was 32nd in 20:39 and Ruth Burrowes was 38th with a time of 20:58.
“We’ve had a fun rivalry with Waterloo over the past few years and this race came down to just a couple of places,” said head coach, Dick Moss. “The girls ran well as a team, but also laid down excellent individual races, with most of them running either personal or seasonal bests.”
The squad's next race is the Guelph Open on Oct. 13, to be followed two weeks later by the OUA Championships in Toronto.
