PORTAGE — The Southwestern Michigan Athletic Conference West teams participating in the Portage Invitational on Saturday were at a bit of a disadvantage, since they just competed in a divisional jamboree on Wednesday.

But the Portage Northern girls squad was still able to finish in the middle of the pack at one of the largest cross country competitions in the country.

The Huskies, led by sophomores Danielle Melgar (95th place) and Chelsea Carpentier (105th), claimed 23rd place in the Division 1 girls race.

Melgar was happy with her individual time of 20:30 and her team’s performance, considering the circumstances.
