6: Rabenold wins MVP as Women's Cross Country rolls to 25th-consecutive
Our next “13-14 Rewind: Moment of the Year” moves us into the month
of November as the Grove City College women's cross country team looked
to maintain its stronghold on the Presidents' Athletic Conference at the
2013 conference championships in Pittsburgh on November 2.
After graduating ten seniors, including the top five runners from the
2012 PAC title team, the Wolverines, while still picked to win, were not
the overwhelming favorite as they had been in many years past. However,
encouraged by Coach Sean Severson to put it all together for one day,
the Wolverines did exactly that, going 16-for-16 in career-best times
and placing 10 runners in the top 25 to cruise to the program's
25th-consecutive conference crown with a mere 33 team points.
Sophomore standout Emily Rabenold ran an impressive 21:45.60 -- then the
fifth-best time in school history -- to win the race by more than a
minute and earn conference MVP honors, making her the first Grove City
runner to do so since 2009.
Sophomore Stevie Huston (4th) and senior Laurel Skorup (7th) joined
Rabenold on the All-PAC First Team while sophomore Lydia Hogan (9th),
junior Kara Cremean (12th) and senior Austin Powell (13th) were Second
Team honorees and junior Caroline Kimpel (17th) earned Honorable Mention
