WARRENVILLE, Ill.--  Denison women's cross country placed 11th out of 17 teams at the 2018 Gil Dodds Invitational hosted by Wheaton College.  Three, top-25 teams were in the field, led by the overall team champion and No. 2 ranked Washington-St. Louis.  The Bears finished first with 24 points by placing five in the top-7.

Denison was led by first-year Emily Willson who placed 45th overall with a time of 23:54.2 on the 6K course. Willson, who was named the NCAC Runner of the Week after her performance at the Franklin Grizzly Invitational on Sept. 1, posted a career-best time at Wheaton. 

Following Willson's performance, Meagan Balch crossed the finish line in 52nd place in 23:59.9 and Erin O'Connor took 93rd with a time of 24:42.1.
