The Dominican duo of Samantha Klunk (York, PA) and Sarah Dugandzic (Suffern, NY) were DC's top finishers and they finished in ninth place overall and third in the Division II and III standings. Freshman Jessica Avila (Mount Vernon, NY) and sophomore Julia Miller (Mount Vernon, NY) took 13th place overall and sixth place in the Division II and III standings, while freshman Keyla Cruz (Bronx, NY) and Amanda Castro (New Rochelle, NY) finished in 27th place overall and 16th in the Division II and III standings.
Dominican is back in action next Saturday when they will participate in the Fordham Fiasco which will take place at Van Cortland Park.
