PHILADELPHIA – Freshman Sabrina Roldan (Woodbridge, N.J./Woodbridge) turned in her second top 10 finish in as many weeks to lead the Felician College women's cross-country team to a fourth-place result out of 12 teams at the Sixth Annual Jack Saint Clair Memorial, hosted by Philadelphia University on Saturday morning at Fairmount's Park's Belmont Plateau.
Felician was participating in its first 6,000-meter race of the season. Roldan completed the course in 25 minutes, 42 seconds, to come in eighth out of 95 competitors. She ran the 20th-fastest 6K race in the 14-year history of the Felician program, and crossed the line more than two minutes ahead of her closest teammate.
Felician's other four scorers completed the event within 30 seconds of each other. Freshman Katie Rohsler (Fredon, N.J./Kittatinny Regional) was 35th with a time of 27:56. Finishing consecutively were juniors Andrea Sarracino (Wood-Ridge, N.J./St. Mary) (39th, 28:15), Sylvia Bialy (Lodi, N.J./Lodi) (40th, 28:16), and Lianne Rossi (Nutley, N.J./Nutley) (41st, 28:26). Sarracino and Rossi each sliced more than four minutes off of their 2012 time on the same course.
Felician's 129 points were 30 behind third-place University of the Sciences, and 22 better than Ocean County College in fifth. The Golden Falcons were third-best out of five Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) members in attendance.
The host Rams won the championship with 41 points. Kaitlyn Johnson of the Georgetown Running Club was the individual winner in 23:24, and Philadelphia junior Taylor Falvey was the top varsity collegiate competitor, placing third overall in 24:22.
The Golden Falcons will return to Belmont Plateau in two weeks for the CACC Championship, which will be run on a 5,000-meter course.
