Claire Dallmeyer ran a 14:26 for a 12th-place finish, and Keeley McKinney finished up for the Pirettes in 17th place with a time of 14:57.
The Pirates also ran well and had three members in the top 10. Spencer Flieller placed fifth with a time of 18:02, followed by freshman Marcos Guevara, who placed ninth with a time of 18:22. Dylan Sefcik rounded out the top 10 with a time of 18:46. Sherman Evans ran an 18:59 for 12th, and Thomas Rodriquez ran a 19:11 for 13th.
