York Competes at Gettysburg Invitational

GETTYSBURG, PA – The York College women’s cross country team traveled to Gettysburg College Saturday afternoon to compete in the Gettysburg Invitational. The Spartans finished 16th out of 21 squads.

Junior Melody Parshall (Dover, Pa./Homeschooled) continues to be York’s top runner as she was the first Spartan finisher on the day. Parshall’s time of 24:28.30 placed her 44th among the event’s 233 runners.

Freshman Corie Thompson (Ambler, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) captured 46th-place for the green and white, a mere 2.07 seconds behind Parshall. Thompson continues to improve as the season progresses and will look to peak at the Capital Athletic Conference Championships.

Laura Colantuono (Carlisle, Pa./Cumberland Valley), Claudia Hess (Reinholds, Pa./Cocalico), and Terah Bloemer (Stewartstown, Pa./Kennard-Dale) posted times of 28:32.82, 29:04.41, and 29:20.34 as each landed in the top-200.
