The women's cross country team took second place out of 14 teams at the Calvin Invitational, while senior runner Elaine Simpson took the individual title on the women's side for the second straight race she has run. The men's team placed seventh.

Simpson's time of 17:50 in the 5K race was five seconds ahead of the second place competitor and a career personal-best. All-American junior Justine Jeroski finished in 12th place with a time of 18:29 in her first race of the year and sophomore Natalia Cabrera took 19th with a time of 18:50. Overall, nine Spartan ladies set personal records on the day. The No. 14-ranked Spartans finished second to host Calvin, who is ranked No. 2 in the country.

Simpson was named the University Athletic Association's Athlete of the Week in women's cross country this week. It is Simpson's first athlete of the week award.

Junior Tim Smith led the men with a 25th-place finish in a time of 25:59 while junior Ethan Kleinbaum was close behind with a 29th-place finish in 26:09. Ten Spartan men set personal records at the event.

The Spartans will be in action next on Saturday, October 2nd when they travel to Ohio Wesleyan University for the All-Ohio Championships.
