Last Time Out…
This will mark Cleveland State's first race in over three weeks, as the Vikings were last in action at the Tommy Evans Invitational on September 7. The Vikings were paced by junior Anna Brandt who finished fourth individually with a 5K time of 18:12.
Korte Continues Strong Performances
Through the first two races of the season, freshman Hannah Korte has finished in the top-three for the Vikings on both occasions, recording 5K times of 19:41 at the Queen City Invitational and 20:04 at the Tommy Evans Invitational. Korte is one of four Vikings to record a 19-minute 5K this season, and one of two rookies to do so.
Brandt On The Top Performances List
Anna Brandt's time of 18:12 that she recorded at the Tommy Evans Invitational last time out, ranks fourth on the CSU Top Performances List (since 2005), giving her seven times that rank in the top-10. So far this season, Brandt has been Cleveland State's top finisher in both races, recording 18-minute 5K times on both courses.
