Men, Women Both Finish 10th at Paul Short Run; Hanley Finishes 5th Overall

Competing at one of the most competitive meets in the entire country and going up against multiple Division I and Division II opponents, the Emory cross country team turned in a pair of impressive performances. The men's team tallied 339 points, finishing 10th out of 47 teams and four runners finishing in the top-100 in a field of over 400. The women also finished 10th out of 43 teams with 396 points, including a top-10 finish from graduate student Brigid Hanley.

Hanley's start to her Emory career has been a dominant one, finishing in the top-10 for the third straight meet. She turned in her best time as an Eagle, finishing fifth with a time of 21:46.4. Hanley was joined by junior Jenna Daly in 66th with a time of 23:04.8 and freshman Madison Tiaffay in 86th recording a time of 23:14.1 to round out the three Eagles to finish inside of the top-100.

Freshman Cameron Gupta turned in a solid performance as well, finishing in 113th with a time of 23:28.9. Junior Natalie Sandlow was the fifth Eagle to cross the finish line recording a time of 23:39.3 to finish 141st.

Once again, freshman Kirin Karver led the way for the Eagles, finishing 25th with a time of 25:28.5. Karver has been the first Eagle to cross the finish line in all three races he has competed in. He finished fifth among freshmen at the meet.

Joining Karver in the top-100 are junior Scott Masterson in 59th finishing in 25:56.5, junior Jonathan Orelowitz in 66th in 25:57.8, and senior Tristan Olpin crossing the finish line at 26:08.8 to finish 86th. The three upperclassmen all finished in under 27 minutes to help lead the Eagles to the tenth-place finish. Junior David Evans finished close behind in 103rd with a time of 26:15.3 to round out the Eagles' final score.

The Eagles will be back on the course on Saturday, October 14 with two meets. Some will head to the Rowan Border Battle, while others will go to Spartanburg for the Upstate Invitational.
