"Today was a great opportunity for our women to compete on a really big stage" related head coach Robb Munro. "They responded and ran great! Many were close to their career and season bests. As we look forward to the NAC Championships, it was great to see them respond to the level of competition they way they did."

The Delhi women will now make the leap into postseason preparations, where their November consists of their first-ever NAC Championship appearance on Saturday, Nov. 2, followed by the USCAA National Championships on Friday, Nov. 8.
