Tori Peet, another senior on the squad, rounded-out the team's scoring at 23rd place and a time of 18:39.0.



The top five times for SVSU totaled 1:31:41.7, just shy of Northern Michigan's winning total of 1:31:18.9. The Wildcats had 58 points in the victory while the Cards had 71.



Saginaw Valley returns to the course on October 24th at the Eastern Michigan Classic.
