(Grand Rapids, Mich.) Aside from a blustery twenty mile per hour wind, conditions were ideal for the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference Cross Country meet at Riverside Park.

Cornerstone’s top two, Andi Owens-Ripley and Janelle Lindman wasted no time, racing to the front of the pack. After an opening mile in 5:53, Andi worked her way into a three-way battle for second with Katey Cramer of Aquinas and Sarah Sherwood of Madonna. Lindman took her place in line as the pack strung out and held on to sixth.

In the final mile Owens-Ripley broke free and began closing the gap on the leader, Carly Plank of Aquinas. She got within ten seconds, taking second in 19:02 and earning All-Conference honors. Lindman’s determined effort kept her in sixth, also making the All-WHAC team.
