Woodley ran 28:52.7 in the 8K race, beating his own previous record of 28:58. His mile average was 5:48.5. The time put him in 44th place in a field of 69 runners, all of them besides his Carlow teammates competing for NCAA Division II schools.

The Celtics finished fifth as a team, behind Lock Haven, the Penn State club team, East Stroudsburg, and Indiana University of Pa. Carlow’s five runners posted a total time of 2:47.26 and an average time of 33:29, and scored 150 points.

Lock Haven won the event, with a total time of 2:14:13, an average time of 26:50 and a score of 20. Ben Robinson, of GU Crew, won the race with a time of 26:10.2 and an average mile of 5:15.8.

Jeffrey Amorose (SO/Pittsburgh, Pa.) was Carlow’s next finisher after Woodley, crossing the line in the 50th spot with a time of 30:02.2, for an average of 6:02.5 per mile.
