Saturday: No. 1 Johns Hopkins at Salisbury
The defending national champion and top-ranked Johns Hopkins placed six runners in the top eight and seven in the top 10 to claim the team title at Salisbury’s Sea Gull Opener. The Blue Jays totaled 23 points to easily top runner-up Rowan, which earned its second-place finish with 55 points. Loyola (64), Marymount (143) and host Salisbury (151) rounded out the top five in the final team standings.
Sophomore Hannah Oneda, who ran in the Pam Am Junior Championships just a week ago, made a strong push at leader Megan Borz of Rowan and overtook her down the stretch to place first in 21:54 – eight seconds ahead of Borz.
When freshman Tess Meehan crossed the line in 10th place with a time of 22:53 the Blue Jays had claimed seven finishers in the top 10, while only Rowan had more than one of its runners place in the top 10 among the other eight competing teams.
