Lawlor places third for women's cross country at NESCAC meet

GRAY, Maine -- Colby College's Cait Lawlor went from 12th place last year to third place in 2017 at the New England Small College Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Championships at Pineland Farms on Saturday.

While the NESCAC does not officially release all-league selections until next week, Lawlor will be an All-NESCAC runner for the second straight year. A transfer from Providence College after her first year, Lawlor has had marked improvement in all three league meets. She finished 42nd at the conference meet as a sophomore and was 12th when Colby hosted the meet last year at the Quarry Road Trails.
 
Lawlor (pictured) finished the 6-kilometer (3.73 miles) course in 22 minutes, 2.9 seconds in a field of 144 finishers. Amherst College's Nicky Roberts won the race in 21:19.9, while Victoria Kingham of Williams College was runner-up in 21:53.9. Lawlor held off Katherine Cook (22:05.0) of Bates.
 
Colby first-year Sophia Gorman had a fine league meet debut by taking 30th place in 23:24.6. Hannah Springhorn placed 57th for the Mules in 24:00.8. Springhorn was 26th at last year's league meet, but has battled injury problems this year. Taylor Kennedy took 65th for the Mules in 24:22.9 and Helen Chavey placed 68th with a 24:26.9.
 
The Mules placed eighth with a score of 196, but were just two points out of seventh and eight out of sixth place.
