@DubC_XCTR women claim first in home tri-meet
WILMINGTON- The Wilmington College women's cross country team demonstrated their depth tonight in a home tri-meet against Thomas More College and Notre Dame College. With a team made up entirely of freshman and sophomore runners, the Fightin' Quakers finished the meet in first-place, only one point ahead of the second-place team, Thomas More. 
  • The Fightin' Quakers posted three of the top six times of the meet. 
  • Sophomore Allison Helmke (Defiance, OH/Tinora) once again, crossed the finish line first for the Fightin' Quakers, earning third-place overall with a time of 13:37.9 for the two-mile course.  
  • Freshman pair McKenzie Hamm (Blanchester, OH/Blanchester) and Summer Doty (North Lewisburg, OH/Triad) ran in for fifth (13:54.0) and sixth (13:56.9), respectively. 
  • "It was a nice win for a very young and inexperienced women's team. They did a really nice job." 
  • "I was really happy with our performance tonight. I was looking for consistent racing out of our team and tightening up our pack time for our first five runners. I thought we did a great job of that!" 
  • "The improvement both teams showed from our meet last week to tonight was great."
  • The Fightin' Quakers will be back in action Saturday, September 30 at the Louisville Cross Country Classic.
