BETHLEHEM, Pa.  (October 5 2013) –  Sophomore Paige Senatore (Delsea, N.J.) led the Rutgers women’s cross country team with an eighth place finish in the Brown Race of the 40th Annual Paul Short Cross Country Invitational hosted by Lehigh University.

With unseasonably warm October weather, it was a tough day for the competitors on the 6K course with the officials cancelling the high school portion of the race due to the heat.

Overall, the Scarlet Knights finished 25th out of the 45 teams in the Brown Race.

The  purpose  of  us  attending  the  competition  was  for  the  team  to  preview  the  course  in  order  to  gain  familiarity  with  it,” said head coach James Robinson.

The Lehigh course will be the same course Rutgers will run on November 15th in the NCAA Mid-Atlantic District II Cross Country Championships.

Senatore continued her successful fall on Saturday with her eighth place finish to lead all Scarlet Knights.  She finished the race in a time of 21:57 and was 44 seconds off the lead.

Also racing was freshman Kaitlyn Bedard (Ringoes, N.J.)(24:03), freshman Rashmi Singh (Flemington, N.J.)(24:06), junior Allison Payenski (Whitehouse Station, N.J.) (24:12), junior Felicia O’Donnell (Franklinville, N.J.) (25:03) and freshman Nisa Cicitta (Glen Gardner, N.J.) (25:41).

The Rutgers women’s cross country team returns to action on Saturday, October 12 at the Metropolitan Championships at Van Cortlandt Park.
