RIVER FALLS, Wis. – Running her first collegiate race, Emma Greenlee (Fy./Aurora, Minn./Mesabi East) was the runner up at the UW-River Falls Falcon Invitational to help the Carleton College women’s cross country team place second overall.

Greenlee completed the six-kilometer course in 23:25.5, while senior Abby Sharer (Millstone Twp, N.J./Princeton Day) finished fifth at 23:40.8. Fiona Casey (Fy./Chicago, Ill./Northside) was next across the line for the Knights with her time of 23:56.8.

“Emma did a tremendous job at structuring her race and working with Abby,” said Carleton head coach Donna Ricks. “It was nice to get this race under our belt, as it will assist us in formulating our workouts and racing packs for the upcoming meets. I have been very pleased with the work ethic of this team and am looking forward to watching the progress and growth of this team.”

Carleton, which elected not to race its top seven runners at the meet, finished with 42 points, only eight behind host UW-River Falls and 27 points clear of regionally-ranked UW-Stout and 44 points in front of the NCAA D-II program from St. Cloud State.

Ruthie Boyd (So./Breckenridge, Colo./Summit) and Sarah Nazarino (Jr./Seattle, Wash./Garfield) rounded out the scoring for the Knights, placing 13th and 15th, respectively, at 24:36.1 and 24:44.3.

Sarah Allaben (Fy./Gates Mills, Ohio./Hawken), Maya Hilty (Fy./Grand Junction, Colo./Palisade), and Berit Hudson-Rasmussen (So./Champaign, Ill./University Laboratory) also posted top-20 finishes.

Carleton races next at the St. Olaf Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 16.
