The Gators’ top finishers were junior Tatum Goforth in the 800-meter run (second) and junior Hannah Wheeling in the 1,600-meter run (third).

One of the top young XCP athletes had encouraging effort in the 400-meter dash sprint event. Freshman Tatiyana Angry finished sixth.

And Xavier, traditionally strong in team relay events, finished second in the 4x800.
