Sydney Wolf Earns PSAC Cross Country Title
Griffin senior Sydney Wolf won the PSAC Individual Cross Country title in October, the first Seton Hill runner to ever win a PSAC conference championship.
Wolf finished strong over the final 300 meters of the race to overtake an Edinboro University runner to win the individual title. Her performance helped the women's cross country team to a second place finish at the PSAC Championships, the highest team finish in university history.
The 2021 PSAC Championships were held at Kutztown University on the Farm Course in Kutztown, PA.
Wolf's PSAC title is the first individual title won by a Griffin since Jeannie Bujdos won the WVIAC Individual Championship in 2012. Chelsea Poole was second overall in the 2016 race while Skye Christian finished third in the 2018 race. The women's team was third in each of the last two PSAC Championships.
Wolf finished the 6K course in a time of 22:23.8 to win the title. Hannah Smrcka was the top finishing freshman in the event. She was eighth overall with a time of 23:16.6. Isabelle McCabe was 12th overall with a time of 23:21.9. Darby Roth was 22nd overall. She completed the course in 23:58.2. Rounding out the top five for the Griffins was Alexis Cunningham in 30th place. She ran a time of 24:19.1.
The Griffin women continued their success with an appearance at the Atlantic Regional Championship in early November, where they finished second overall. The regional finish propelled the Griffin women to an appearance in the NCAA Division II Championships - the third in Seton Hill history. At Nationals, the Griffins placed 32nd overall.
