The men’s and women’s cross country teams dominated their dress rehearsal Saturday at the Asbury University Invitational ahead of the Nov. 4 River States Conference (RSC) meet.

It was the last chance for both squads to compete before conferences and also against RSC competition, with six teams represented.

The women came out on top in the 5K race with the best team score, led by Anna Shields once again. Shields posted a course-record time of 18 minutes, 44 seconds. Freshman Alyssa Boyd took second at the meet, as seven Pioneers finished in the top ten.

Point Park claimed four of the top five overall spots, with junior Kara Rohlf finishing fourth and freshman Kayla Roberts in fifth.

The men ran away with the team victory as well in the 8K race, with sophomore Xavier Stephens winning the individual title by 14 seconds. The Pioneers had three of the race’s top four finishers, with senior Chris Hunt and freshman Bailey Rotellini following in third and fourth place, respectively.

Half of the top 20 finishers in both races were in Point Park jerseys.

The course in Wilmore, Ky., is the same one the Pioneers will run at the RSC Championship Meet in two weeks.
