On Friday night, Sept. 7, the Dickinson Red Devil men’s and women’s cross country teams competed in the 53rd annual Little Three Championship hosted by Gettysburg College. The women claimed their 25th consecutive win and the men claimed their 22nd consecutive win against the Franklin and Marshall College Diplomats and the Gettysburg Bullets. 

The Dickinson women’s team secured the top-10 spots with Isabel Cardi ‘21 (18:51.0) capturing first place on the 5,000-meter course. Other top women’s finishers include Tessa Cassidy ’20 (18:57.6), Emma Johnston ’21 (19:02.5), Sarah House ’20 (19:07.9), and Allyson Yanega ’20 (19:10.7). 

  Cardi says, “Yesterday’s meet was successful. Coach Nichter hyped us up during the week, so I think it helped everyone feel prepared for the race. It was great to see hard work during pre-season pay off!” 

A. Yanega comments, “The season has had a promising start and the past two meets for the team have gone really well, so if we keep it up, good things will happen.”

Dickinson men’s team placed six runners in the top-10. The Red Devils were led by race winner Eric Herrmann ’19 (15:57.0), who also won last year’s Little Three Championship. Other top finishers include Bryce Descavish ‘20 (16:02.0), Duncan Hopkins ‘19 (16:08.0), Will Chandler ’19 (16:42.0), and Christopher Scharf ’22 (16:43.0).

To add to the successes of the Red Devils, Bryce Descavish ’20 was named the Centennial Conference Athlete of the Week. On Friday, Aug. 31, Bryce was the top collegiate finisher at the Galen Piper Invitational. 

Dickinson cross country continues its season on Saturday, September 22nd at the Dickinson Long./Short Invitational at Big Spring High School. We wish them luck and continued success.
