DENVER – On Monday, St. Mary’s Jessica Waninger-Saroni got a glimpse of what this year’s NCAA Division II regional cross-country meet might look like.
Running alone for the Rattlers in the meet, Waninger-Saroni finished 30th of 57 competitors with a time of 26 minutes, 2 seconds at the NCAA Preview Cross Country Meet.
Waninger-Saroni, who qualified for last year’s regional meet, finished roughly 1 ½ minutes behind Adams State’s Lauren Martin, who won the event with a time of 23:28.
Waninger-Saroni will rejoin her Rattler teammates on Friday, when they’ll run at the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islander Splash in Corpus Christi, Texas.
