GRAND ISLAND, NY – A field of 55 competitors were challenged by the five-kilometer course at the University at Buffalo’s home course on Grand Island Saturday. The women’s race was won by the home teams’ Mary Veith who finished in 18:39, but it was Colgate University who captured the team title with a low score of 23. Hilbert College placed fifth on the day, as the Hawks were one of five complete teams in action.

For the second week in a row, Hilbert’s Amanda Phillips (Cheektowaga, NY/Cleveland Hill) was the Hawks top finisher as she crossed the finish line in 27:53, and a 43rd place finish.

The victorious Raiders from Colgate edged out the host Bulls (64), and local division III programs D’Youville College (89), Medaille College (116), and Hilbert (137).

The Lady Hawks will next prepare for the Saturday, September 29th home invitational at nearby Frontier High School. Start time is scheduled for 11:00 am.
