Sat Nov 18, 2017

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Dartmouth women’s cross country team finished 29th Saturday morning at the 2017 NCAA Championship Meet. 

On the national stage, the Big Green posted 745 points on the 6K course at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park.

New Mexico was both the team champion with 90 points, while sporting the individual champion as well with Ednah Kurgat finishing first in a field of 255. The Lobos edged out second-place San Francisco as the Dons finished with 105 points.

Leading the way for Dartmouth was Olivia Lantz as she ran to 135th overall in 20:58 a week after earning all-region honors.

Fellow junior Lillian Anderson and freshman Ella Ketchum were the next two Big Green harriers to cross the line, doing so in 172nd (21:16) and 180th (21:19), respectively.

Julia Stevenson — another all-region performer — was the fourth Dartmouth student-athlete to finish, crossing in 21:44 to claim 211th. In her final collegiate race, Leigh Moffett was the final scoring runner for the Green and White as she claimed 224th in 21:51.

Finishing just outside the points were freshman Glenny Murphy (229th, 22:00) and senior Bridget O'Neill (240th, 22:21).

The meet was originally scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m. but was moved up 105 minutes due to an impending weather system in the area.

Saturday’s race marked Dartmouth’s 12th all-time NCAA appearance, the most by any of the eight Ivy League women’s programs.
