LOUISVILLE, KY – Presbyterian College’s Sally Hart ran a 6k of 24:27 to lead the women’s cross country team to 32nd at the 2015 NCAA Southeast Regional Championship held at Panorama Farms on Friday.
Hart (Raleigh, NC) finished 186th overall on a very challenging course on a very windy day. In all, PC was led by two freshman and two sophomores as Ripley Fricano (Atlanta, Ga) ran 26:07, Bea DiBona (Charleston, SC) ran 26:13 and Hydia Green (Union, SC) ran 27:59.
