Peatfield Comes in First at Mariner Invitational - Thomas

BUCKSPORT, ME- Crystal Peatfield notched her first career first place finish at the Mainer Invitational, hosted by Maine Maritime Academy. Along with it being Peatfield's first career win, it is also the first career victory for the Thomas women's cross country program. Peatfield won the three-mile race by 1:29 over the second place finisher.  
Also coming in the top ten for the Terriers were Samantha Felbaum, who came in sixth place, with a time of 26:24. One spot behind Felbaum was Nicole Ryderwho came in nine seconds after with a time of 26:33. Coming in last for the Terriers was Bea Parenteau with a time of 30:52.
 Though Peatfield came in first it wasn't enough for the Terriers to score, because they didn't have the required five participants to score as a team, as result Maine Mairtime took the team point win.
The Terriers look to build on this week's performance and go into the North Atlantic Conference Championship meet hosted by Thomas.  And they look to surprise some teams with a solid individual and team finishes.
The NAC Championship will be held next Sunday, November 3rd at Quarry Road in Waterville hosted by Thomas.
