The OLLU women’s cross-country team ran its first meet for the season, and one runner set an OLLU record during the Alamo City Opener held at the Olmos Basin Park and hosted by Trinity University.

Freshman Ceara O’Donnell was the first from the women’s team to cross the finish line with the time 15:54.22. In her first meet ever for the Saints, O’Donnell erased the old 4000m school record from Aug. 31, 2012. Then freshman Marianna Hurtado set that record after she ran the four kilometers in 17 minutes and 11 seconds. O’Donnell also became a member of the OLLU Saints Halo Club for runners, who complete a 4K under 16 minutes. Read more online.
