The MVCC Lady Hawks Cross Country team opened the 2015 season by competing in the SUNY Poly Short Course Invitational in Marcy.
The Hawks not only competed with some of the top NCAA Division III schools in the state but also had to battle the heat and humidity.
Sophomore AnnaMarie Roberts finished 27th overall with a time of 22:00.9 (first amongst two year colleges).
Freshman Carolyn Peck finished her first collegiate race in 23:00. Sophomore Rebecca Laporte finished third for the Hawks in a time of 24:54.
Freshman Darien Rhone from Boonville (26:31) was followed by fellow Freshman Beverly Gruet from Oriskany (26:34) as they completed their first college races as well. Sophomore Ruth Barnes (Norwich HS) finished 72nd in a time of 30:09.
The Hawks compete next Friday at the Bruce Bridgman Invitational at Finger Lakes Community College.
