This year for the first year, runners had to qualify for the NCCAA
Division II national meet. Josie Lange and Dicia Wahl both qualified to
compete. The race was at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio.
There were 40 womens teams and 262 women registered for the Division I
and II races. Josie had her personal best 5k with a time of 20:59. She
was 9th in the women’s division II race! Dicia was 41st with a time of
27:12. The race course is a beautiful rolling course and the weather
was cool and crisp. Perfect day for a great race. The start was rough, as the starter accidentally
shot his gun and then called the runners back to restart. On the second
start, Josie was trip, went down and had her hand spiked as she was
pushing herself back up to run the race. Despite the rough start, both
girls ran hard and finished a great first season at Grace Bible College.
