Racing in one of the strongest fields of competitors this season, Megan DeWeerd met the challenge as she posted her best time of the year.  With her performance she earned NCCAA and CCAC Cross Country Runner of the Week honors for October 1-6.

Overall the Trolls, who are receiving votes in the latest NAIA Coaches’ Poll, finished in seventh place out of 14 schools.
