ELSAH, Ill. -- Mount Union junior Hilary Reigle (Madison / Madison) ran her best 6k time of the season (22.10.2) to finish 91st at the NCAA Division III Women's Cross Country Championships in Elsah, Illinois.

Reigle made the meet by finishing sixth overall at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional last Saturday in Powell, Ohio.

She had five other top 10 finishes this Fall including placing third at the Ohio Athletic Conference Championships then posting a season-best 6k time of 22:12.0 with a second place finish at the Oberlin Inter-Regional Rumble.

It is the fifth time that a Purple Raider female has made the meet as an individual with last coming in 2013 as Brooke Mathie (Louisville / Louisville) placed 37th. Mount Union has one All-American performance in women's cross country and that came from Natalie Lambert, who placed 20th in 1997.
