BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Catawba delivered some of the best times in school history as it ran in one of largest cross country meets in the country on Saturday at Lehigh University’s Paul Short Run. Hannah Mercer set a new record for the women in a 6k, while Ethan Bemis ran the fourth best 8k in school history. The meet was held on Saturday morning at the Goodman Campus Cross Country Course. The Catawba Indian men placed 32nd among 45 teams in the Brown 8k, while the women were 37th in the Brown 6k.

Hannah Mercer shaved 11 seconds off her own school record with a 22:42 and was 105th. Madison Lowery was 115th as she finished in a time of 22.48 which is now the second fastest time in school history and a new standard for a freshman. Christina D’Amelio ran a 23:17 which is now tied for the fifth fastest 6k at Catawba. Stony Brook won the team title, while Genny Corcoran, of SUNY Geneseo won the women’s race in a time of 20:42.
