"Overall, I thought the girls ran really well today," said Quinnipiac Head Coach Carolyn Martin. "We're starting to post some really nice times. We should be recording faster times in the next couple of weeks and be ready for the Northeast Conference Championships," said Martin.

The Bobcats return to action when they compete at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. on Saturday, February 5.
