NAIA Great Lakes Challenge Recap

The senior standout went down last week with an injury and hopes to return soon as she aims for a finish near the top of the ultra-competitive Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference. The women’s WHAC championship is Nov. 3 at Riverside Park – the same course as Saturday’s NAIA Great Lakes Challenge.

The Mustangs were led by Mercedesz Brown (Redford, Mich./Thurston) with a time of 26:35. The freshman has hit her stride as of late as she looks forward to the upcoming WHAC championships. Saturday’s impressive time of 26:35 shaved minutes off her previous best from earlier this season..

Fellow freshman Devin Willis (Flint, Mich./Carmen Ainsworth) came in next for the Mustangs after clocking in at 29:18. Willis, a track standout, hopes to finish the season strong at the Nov. 3 WHAC championship event. Willis’ time Saturday was also an improvement on her time from last weekend as she finished ahead of her previous pace set last week at OCC’s Hargett Harrier.

LaNyck Washington (Detroit, Mich./Kentwood), racing for the first time this season, rounded out the day for the Mustangs with a time of 31:03.
