BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – The Bryn Athyn College women's cross country team put together a strong showing in front of its home fans as the Lions came in second place in the Bryn Athyn Cross Country Invitational Friday afternoon.

Led by a top-10 effort from Laura Clymer, the Lions had a score of 71 points—edging out Albright and its 72 points to claim the runner-up position in the team standings.

In her first career 6-kilometer race, Clymer crossed the finish line in a time of 27 minutes, 36.0 seconds to secure a ninth-place finish.

To go along with Clymer's strong finish, the other five Lions to participate in the field set a personal-best time at the 6K distance.

Brock posted a time of 31:49.5, 44 seconds than her previous best time, to end the day in 23rd. Elder settled for 24th with a 31:51.2, smashing her old personal best by nearly three minutes.
