“The women did okay today,” said head coach Doug Molnar. “It’s not what I thought we were capable of doing, but the long lay-off between meets may have played a part in that.”

Junior Xiamar Richards led the Lady Govs with an 82nd-place finish out of 337 runners, finishing the five-kilometer course in 19:08.50. Senior Chantelle Grey completed the race in less than 20 minutes as well, coming in 167th at 19:49.27.

Junior Kendra Kirksey (20:34.47, 232nd), junior Miranda Weed (20:53.78, 275th) and senior Alyssa Molnar (22:10.08, 314th) rounded out the scoring for Austin Peay.

“This team has a lot of potential,” Molnar said. “We’ll need to make some adjustments but I think we can get there before the end of the season.”

The Lady Govs will be back in action at next weekend’s JSU Foothills Invitational in Oxford, AL.
