Harriers Compete at Border Clash

GLASSBORO, N.J. – The Shenandoah University cross country teams had one final tune-up prior to the ODAC Championships in two weeks with a pair of strong performances Saturday at the Border Clash Invitational hosted by Rowan University.

The women finished 34th of 45 teams with the men finishing 36th of 45.

The invitational featured 14 nationally ranked squads across the two races.

Senior Shelby Shrader paced the SU women with a 23:15.3 over the 6000-meter course with Emily Miller recording a 24:00.7, Aislynn Smith 24:25.5, Kayla McGhee 24:53.4 and Alexandria Caljean 25:13.9.

Shrader was 163rd overall.

Junior Matthew Horton posted a 26:15.8, 224th place showing to lead the Hornet men in the 8000-meter event.

Ray Parsons had a 26:36.7, Zachary Barton 27:24.5, Justin Mehrer 27:46.6 and Winston Davis 27:54.5.

"This was a great field with so many nationally ranked teams and we performed very well," SU head coach Andy Marrocco said. "We are improving each week as we prepare for the conference championships.

"I am very proud of each runner as many of them improved their times significantly today."

Both teams are off next week in preparation for the ODAC Championships hosted by Washington and Lee University on October 29.
