Wickens establishes personal record

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Albion's first-year runners got tested at the 6K distance for the first time Friday as the Britons competed in the Auto-Owners Insurance Spartan Invitational at the Forest Akers East Golf Course.

Jessica Shaw, the first-year runner from Allegan, continues to be Albion's No. 1 runner. Though she went out too fast, Shaw reached the finish line in 23:11. She was the 52nd non-Division I runner to complete the course.

Albion's No. 2 runner, Megan Wickens, established a personal record of 23:55 while finishing 92nd. Rachel Derocher (24:37), Laura Kelly (25:07), and Theresa Hencsie (25:56) completed Albion's top five.

Please see the Michigan State website for the results.

Albion will get its first look at its Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association rivals Sept. 28 when it runs in the MIAA Jamboree at Adrian.
