Wildcats close out XC season

SOMERS, Wis. – The NMU cross country team wrapped up the 2012 season at the NCAA Midwest Regional on Saturday (Nov. 3) finishing eighth out of 23 teams with 245 points.

“We had a good day but not a great day today,” said NMU coach Jenny Ryan. “We ran well with fast times but we have such a strong region and everyone ran fast.”

Grand Valley won the meet with 45 team points. Also qualifying for the NCAA Championship was Saginaw Valley State (110), Ferris State (134), Southern Indiana (147) and Bellarmine (154). Junior Mallory Celaya was the first Wildcat across the finish line in 22:23, good for 34th place. Freshman Mary Kate Cirelli was 17 seconds back in 47th. Junior Mandy Dye finished two seconds and three places behind Cirelli in 50th.

Sophomore Larissa Halonen (54th) and sophomore Katie Granquist (60th) also ran under 23 minutes. Senior Rita Woitas (89th) and freshman Megan Edic (90th) rounded out the runners for NMU.
