ALBANY, N.Y. - The women's cross country team finished 10th in the 23 team field on Saturday at the 39th annual University of Albany Cross Country Invitational. Freshman Elizabeth Finn continued to run at a torrid pace, once again leading the Engineers squad. The University of New Hampshire completed the weekend sweep in Albany, as both the women and the men took first place.

 

First-year standout Elizabeth Finn kept the Engineers in the middle of the pack with another splendid outing. She was the only MIT harrier to place in the top 50, and her time of 18:36.80 was 37.90 seconds faster than the next best MIT runner.

 

The Engineers next compete at the Wellesley College Invitational on October 22nd.
