Nov. 18 marked the end of the women’s cross country season and of captain Nicky Roberts’ collegiate cross country career as she crossed the finish line in fifth place at the NCAA DIII National Championships.

The harriers were met with harsh, windy weather and a tough uphill course, but runners across the division rose to the challenge.

Johns Hopkins placed first overall with its fifth title in six years and a University of Chicago runner claimed the best individual time.

For Amherst, Roberts raced into fifth place out of 279 runners, clocking in at 20:49.50.
