The women were led again by sophomore Isamarie Ramos who ran the 5,000 meter course in 21:29.3 seconds to place 48th in the field of 242 runners.  The other scoring runners for the broncos were junior Kelsey Esselman (99th), sophomore Elise McIntyre (109th), freshman Ashley Magnifico (129th) and sophomore Rainey Cerqua (145th).  The women placed 15th as a team in the field of 22 complete teams.
