The Midway University cross country teams travelled to Wilmore to compete in the Asbury Invitational Oct. 20. For the second time this season, the Lady Eagles came away with a team win. Leading the way for the women’s team in the 5,000 meter race, was freshman Emily Chandler (Elizabethtown) who finished third with a time of 21:25. Finishing sixth was Philippa (Zambia, Africa) in 21:44. Other award winners included Julia Sammet (Lexington) in seventh, Rachelle Felski 16th (Winber, PA) and Madeline Segars 18th (White House, TN). Rounding out those taking part were Josette Isaacs (Rush), Ann Oakley (Louisville), Nataly Gonzalez (Lexington) and Cassie Fryman (Brooksville). The Midway ladies placed first with 45 points. Placing second was conference rival Asbury with 64. The Midway men’s team finished sixth in the meet. The men were led by award winner Jacob Stinnett (Leitchfield) who finished 17th. Making up the rest of the men’s team were Dylan Simpson (Dawson Springs), Shawn Dickerson (Taylorsville, KY), Devan Baker (also of Dawson Springs), Zach Gibson (Whitley City) in 22nd and Robert Fields (Jackson County). “I was extremely pleased with the results of both teams, said Midway Head Coach Rob Lyon. The women placed five on the awards podium and really ran well as a team. Emily Chandler had been out of practice most of the week and gutted out an impressive third place finish. Pippa Asherwood continues to improve each week. Her time from last year has improved an impressive 4:16. The men continue to make strides each week and are really coming together as a team. Both teams will be ready for the conference meet in two weeks”
