Lipscomb's Brenner & North Florida's Meyer Torch Courses to Take First

LakePoint, Ga. - Lipscomb's Courtney Brenner and North Florida's Eden Meyer captured meet victories in impressive fashion to highlight the second weekend of action for ASUN Conference Women's Cross Country squads. In total, 14 ASUN student-athletes garnered top-10 across three different meets.

Meyer paced the field at the UNF XC Invite on Thursday as she crossed the finish line in 17:43.90, 28 seconds ahead of second place. Her time helped the Ospreys land second place at the home meet just behind Florida. Three fellow Ospreys finished in the top-10 with Audrey Carpenter (19:07.38; 5th), Hannah Evans (19:34.14; 8th) and Skye Zeller (19:54.05; 10th). 

With three ASUN sides at the Stan Sims Invite on Friday, Lipscomb came out on top in the preview meet for the 2017 ASUN Championship. The Bisons posted seven of the top-10 performances on the Sam Smith Park course including Courtney Brenner's blazing time of 17:25.1, which bested the field by 51 seconds. Kacey Kemper, Lauren Flynt and Jacie Legiois followed Brenner as Lipscomb secured the top-four spots at the meet. Stetson's Meggie Schneider rounded out the top-five with a time of 18:32.4. Kennesaw State's Caitlyn Farrell led the Owls in seventh place with her 18:56.5 time.
