For the second time in as many seasons, Plattsburgh State women’s cross-country senior Katie Ehmann collected All-Region honors and helped lead the Cardinals to a 17th-place finish at the NCAA Division III Atlantic Regional meet.

Ehmann put forth one of her best efforst as a collegian at the meet where she ran a time of 22:21.8, good for a 18th-place finish in the 272-woman field.

The only other member of PSUC to finish in the top 100 was sophomore Morgan Deming who took home 96th place with a time of 23:51.5. She improved on her time from last year by over a minute and moved up a lot in placing, finishing in 183rd in the meet last season.

Also competing in her final regional bout was senior Amanda Joskow who just missed out on a top-100 finish. She was finished in 107th place with a time of 24:03. Freshman Haley Mooney placed 123rd with a time of 24:17.6, sophomore Megan Schweizer was the final point producer for the Cards, finishing in 134th with a time of 24:30.6.
