2010 Season Review: The Hilbert College 2010 women’s cross country season became official at the AMCC Championships on October 30. The weekend races and the mid-week dual meet were all designed as warm-ups to the championship date at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, PA the last weekend in October. A new team with two returning runner put it on the line and settled for a ninth place finish at the AMCC championships.

Junior Lanie Harrington (Orchard Park, NY/Orchard Park) was the team’s most dependable runner all season.  She was the top finisher in five of the six races the Hawk competed in with her best 5K time (29:41) at the AMCC championship race. Freshman Angela Borkowski (Buffalo, NY/Bennett) was the number two runner although she was the first Hawk to cross the line the hilly Nazareth Invitational. Sophomore Stephanie Smith (Waterloo, NY/Waterloo) was the lone returning runner from 2009 year and her participation was appreciated. Junior Laura Wilson (Buffalo, NY/Grover Cleveland) came back to the team at the AMCC championship meet after she took a year off from running in 2009. She returned with a bang, as she finish in the top spot for the Hawks, 38th place with a 27:16.4 time.  Rounding out the squad were new comers Raven Jones (Rochester, NY/Rush Henrietta) and Stephanie Laymon (Herkimer, NY/Herkimer).
Associate head coaches, Sue Devlin and Jerry Mangan will continue to work with these athletes and mold them into the most competitive runners they wish to become.
