Denison logs a win at Dayton

The Denison women's cross country team opened the 2013 season with a victory at the Dayton Flyer 5K.  Denison captured the Intercollegiate Division title at the 10-team invitational which featured the likes of Ohio State, IUPUI, Xavier, Northern Kentucky and Wittenberg.

Denison senior Olivia Galano paced the Big Red with a 20th place finish overall thanks to her time of 19:43.8.  That time was the best among Intercollegiate competitors.  Sophomore Emily Lamm followed in 23rd overall and second in the Intercollegiate Division with a time of 19:58.0.  Up next for the Big Red was Abbi Boss who checked in 39th out of the field of 105 runners after crossing the finish in 20:38.1.

The top-seven was rounded out by Kate Benson (21:01.7), Claire Barcelo (21:02.1), Sarah McKendry (21:32.4), and Helen Vaquero (22:11.0).

Denison will return to action on Sept. 14 at the Rochester (N.Y.) Invitational.
