PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's cross country team placed third out of eight collegiate teams at the Jack St. Clair Memorial, hosted at Belmont Plateau, on Saturday afternoon.
In their last action prior to the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship, at the course where the Championship will be hosted in two weeks, three Devils ran season-bests in USciences' second 6K of the year.
One of those three was Gabby Moss, who led University of the Sciences with a 19th place finish in the field of 93, which included open entries. The sophomore shaved more than 18 seconds off her first 6K of the season and was the 13th collegiate runner to cross, as well as the third amongst the three CACC teams racing.
Crossing one place behind her was Elizabeth Sauers, who completed the course in 25:33.7.
