CARROLLTON, Ga. - The UWG Wolves women's cross-country program is excited to be back home this weekend, as the university is preparing to host the annual UWG Invitational in Carrollton. After two strong performances at the first two meets, the Wolves are looking to build on their success.
Devin Helms has been the focal point and top runner for the female Wolves so far, as she was able to finish with a top 30 placement two weeks ago at Chattanooga’s twilight meet. She is also trending in the right direction, as she was able to improve upon her already impressive top 50 finish at the Falcon Classic to start the season.
Marion Bartilol and Lauryn Wilson also had strong finishes at the Chattanooga twilight meet that landed them in the top 60. Bartilol finished with a time of 21:54.55, which landed her in at 55th place. Wilson, right behind Bartilol, finished in 58th place and with a time of 21:57.75.
Overall the team has two finishes within the top ten this week as they finished in tenth place at the Falcon classic hosted by Montevallo to begin the season. They also finished sixth at the UTC twilight meet hosted in Chattanooga.
The Wolves hope to ride their momentum into their first home meet of the season, the UWG invitational hosted by UWG in Carrollton, Ga.
