Carrie Hucko (Wexford, Pa. / North Allegheny / Miami-OH) paced Duquesne as the junior grabbed third place in the 70-runner competition. Two freshman finished in the top 15 with Tara Gerlach (Erie, Pa. / Villa Maria Academy) taking 10th place and Rebecca Stearns (Rochester, NY / Brighton) finishing 15th.
