SOMERS, WI – Over the weekend the women's cross country team took to action in the Lucian Rosa Invite on Saturday, October 11th.  After receiving their first top-25 NAIA ranking, the Eagles looked confident and ready to improve on the already successful season.


The Dannehl National Cross Country Course hosted 20 teams and Judson cruised to a 10th place finish in the 5K race. Judson placed in the top ten among many powerhouse NCAA teams and NAIA ranked teams. Pacing the Eagles was senior Sarah Miller. She finished 22nd in the field of over 270 with a time of 18:33.00. Finishing after Miller was Jordan Wagner coming in with a time of 19:08.00 and placing 45th. The last three rounding out the top five runners for Judson included Rachel Cavender (19:21.80, 51st), Jeslaine Thompson (19:44.50, 66th), and Gabby Nevius (20:09.10, 86th). The Eagles accumulated a team score of 269 topping Illinois Wesleyan by 9 points and ousted NAIA competition including St. Francis and Cardinal Stritch.


The Eagles are in top shape and are looking to take charge in remaining competition. Judson will face a tough challenge in the NAIA Great Lakes-Aquinas meet taking place on October 25th at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids Michigan around 12:00pm.
