WARRENVILLE, IL – Governors State began the second half of the season by taking on a large, competitive field at the Eagle Invitational on Friday evening. The Jaguars finished 16th against a lineup that featured 10 NCAA teams, including perennial powerhouse North Central.

Captain Emily Metzger led GSU across the line for the second time this season, clocking 30:59.8 over six kilometers at the St. James Farm Forest Preserve. Senior Dominique Hunt wasn't too far behind, finishing in 31:24.3 while finishing shy of a PR by five seconds. After a two-meet absence due to academic commitments, Keyona Jones found herself back on the course and registered a time of 33:36.3 — a personal-best standard. GSU's scoring lineup was rounded out by Elizabeth Shirk and Kendra Riley.

"We're continuing to improve every week, it was certainly great having Keyona back in the lineup," said GSU Head Coach Kevin Kredens.

GSU travels to Dixon next Saturday to compete in the Skyhawk Invitational.
