The 5k race was held at the Burke Golf Course on the campus of Notre Dame with Detroit Mercy tallying 262 points for ninth.
Fetherolf took 35 seconds off her career 5k time at Notre Dame placing 25th overall in 18:27. It was the seventh-best time in school history at the annual event.
Freshman Madison Burnham also broke the 20-minute mark for the Titans coming in at a time of 19:57, setting her up for a promising future on the course.
The Titans will have a week off before competing in the Greater Louisville Classic on Sept. 30.
