Fellow junior Hayley Ogle was State’s second finisher, placing 29th with a personal best time of 17:34.50 in her 2023 debut, shedding 47 seconds off her previous best. Ogle jumps to 13th place in MSU’s record book, tied with Jones’ other 5K top-20 performance set in 2022.


Ramat Jimoh (45th), Mallory Streetman (59th), and Hunter Anderson (67th) rounded out the top five for MSU. Jimoh finished with a time of 17:51.00, improving her time by 32 seconds from the season opening race, while Anderson finished in 18:12.20, 27 seconds faster than her previous best. Streetman, a redshirt freshman, made her cross-country debut with a time of 18:06.60.


Freshmen Gabrielle Boulay, Madelyn Keating, Brooklyn Quanz and redshirt freshman Maci Mills all set new personal bests, improving from their first collegiate 5k two weeks ago at The Opener.
