Ashlie Decker (4:49.31), Laura Docherty (4:49.31) finished in the top 10 in the mile today. Katie Moraczewski clocked in at 4:51.74 and Rachel Drake ran a 4:53.58. All four times were new personal best for the Gophers.
“It was a great day for our distance group today,” head coach Matt Bingle said. “We had some people take a step forward and that is what we need out of this group. We will work hard this week and get ready to compete next weekend at home.”
