Meet Recap

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (9/26/09)-- Competing without their top runner, Concordia posted seven consistent times and finished 20th at the Roy Griak Invite hosted by the University of Minnesota on Saturday.

Concordia junior Hailey Brenden was pulled from the race minutes before the start due to a minor leg injury. Cobber head coach Marv Roeske decided to rest Brenden instead of taking a risk and having her aggravate the injury to the point of not being able to compete later in the season.

The Cobbers had all seven runners finish under 26:20. It is the most consistent team finish at the Roy Griak in several years. Freshman Elisabeth Hanson was the top CC finisher. She ran a 24:44.0 and finished in 89th place. The next six finishers all posted times within 1:10 of each other. Rachel Pederson clocked a time of 25:06.00 and was the second fastest Cobber finisher and Caroline McGlaughlin ran a 26:15.9 and was the seventh fastest CC harrier.

Concordia will compete at the Jamestown Invitational on Friday, Oct. 3 at 4 p.m.
