The women's team was once again led by the distance duo of sophomore Erica Angell (Poughkeepsie, N.Y./ Spackenkill) and junior Lindsey Bohrer-Yardley (Oneida, N.Y./ Vernon-Verona Sherril). Angell, who was second in the 10,000 on Saturday, was fifth in the 5,000 (17:41.48). Bohrer-Yardley, who was second in the 3,000 steeplechase on Saturday and qualified for NCAA Regionals, was third in the 5,000 (18:00.00).
