By MCC Head Coach: Dan Fishel
The MCC women’s cross country team traveled to Forest Akers East Golf Course on Friday for the Auto Owners Spartan Invitational hosted by Michigan State University. Temperatures were in the mid- to upper- 50′s at race time as the women battled against the Big Ten, GLIAC, MIAA, NAIA schools, and also other junior colleges. Although the race was un-scored, the women ran their best team race of the season so far in their first 6k of the season. Leading the way was Freshman Deanna Near (Montague HS) taking 92nd place out of 307 finishers with a 6k time of23:50. That time breaks the 6k school record formerly set by Michelle DeMuro in 2010 of 24:35 by 45 seconds! “Deanna ran a great race and went through her 5k split in 19:54 along to the way to being the 3rd NJCAA runner to cross the finish line (only 30 seconds behind the 1st runner),” said Coach Dan Fishel. Rounding out the top 7 were sophomore Andrea Lavigne (Mason County Central HS), freshman Andie Young (Grand Haven HS), freshman Marlee Harris (Buckley HS), freshman Sabrina Smith (Hart HS), freshman Raquel Zavala (Muskegon HS), and sophomore Claudia Melton (Grand Haven HS). “The women felt disrespected after being left off the last national cross country poll due to the extremely poor conditions of our last race. I told them if they wanted to move up the national rankings, they needed to run well when the conditions were great, and they really did today! We were not racing at 100% with our #2 runner sick and our #4 and #5 runners nursing minor injuries, but the effort our whole team put forth was great! There’s still a lot of season to go, but I’m excited about the races to come!” The MCC women race next at the Brissman-Lundeen Invitational hosted by Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois in 2 weeks on Friday, September 26th. Go Jayhawks!
