Oct. 18, 2013


WEST POINT, N.Y. – Annie-Norah Beveridge ran Navy past Army, 24-31, in the Star Meet on Friday, Oct. 18. The women’s cross country squad grabs the first star for Navy in the annual Army-Navy Star Competition.

"We're ecstatic. To get four of the top-six positions shows how strong of a team we are," said Navy head coach Karen Boyle. "Annie really finished strong and I'm excited for her. I'm also really proud of our team - this is something that stays with them the rest of their lives."

Beveridge, for the second consecutive star meet, crossed the tape first with a mark of 20:31.52. Army’s Madison Hill (20:34.40) came in second, just three seconds behind Beveridge, to lead the group of Black Knight runners.

Kelley Robinson (20:35.54) and Christina Blair (20:41.76) finished third and fourth to help lead Navy in the victory to round out the top-four competitors.

Following Army’s Katie Collins fifth-place finish, Brenna McDannold (21:12.46) came across the finish line in sixth for Navy’s fourth scorer.

With Navy’s third consecutive star meet win, the Mids extend their all-time record over the Black Knights to 17-11.

The Mids will have next weekend off to prepare for the Patriot League Championships, which will take place on Nov. 2 in Easton, Pa.
