The Jacksonville University women’s cross country team, backed by junior Joane Pierre, ran away with a victory at the University of Central Florida Attack Challenge. The Dolphins tied evenly with the UCF Knights, sharing the victory on Friday Oct. 14.

Despite lacking a full size team with some members failing to show up, the team managed to rack up 88 points, drawing even with the Knights of UCF atop the leader board.

Pierre finished with a time of 21:47:32, earning her the top spot for the second straight meet.

“Joane ran really well and has set herself up nicely a shot to win an individual conference championship,” said JU head coach Ron Grigg.

Sophomore Svenja Meyer posted a time of 22:47:95, grasping decisively onto 6th place. Freshman Sarah Bailey finished 12th with a time of 23:34:60, junior Amalia Vogler 29th with a time of 24:14:51 and junior Alicia Grad-Kaminkow finished 40th with a time of 24:45:23.

JU now has a two-week span to prepare, practice and perfect for the Atlantic Sun Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on Oct. 29.

Come tournament time, Pierre and the team will strive to obtain both individual victories and a group triumph. While there is immense pride in an individual title, for the team, nothing would be as fulfilling as obtaining the team conference championship.

Over the next two weeks the ladies will be immersed in a world of training and conditioning, focusing on their soon impending surge for the title.
