Jordan Tomecek ran the 3.1 miles in a time of 19:43.49, good for 16th place, as Anna Reibs rounded out the scoring portion of the Mastodon pack with a 21st place finish in a time of 19:58.24. Reibs, a freshman, narrowly edged out classmates Kaitlyn Simmons (22nd/20:00.00) and Andrea Bell (23rd/20:03.79), with Rebecca Jacobs taking 30th in a time of 20:36.73.
The way the meet was scored, a dual meet against each of the other teams, the Mastodons dropping two of three "competitions" and tying another.
Ball State toppled IPFW 30-to-25, while Oakland bested the Mastodons 31-24. IPFW and IUPUI ended in a tie, as each team scored 28 points in the dual meet setting.
The Mastodons return to action next weekend, competing at the Indiana Intercollegiates hosted by Indiana State University in Terre Haute.
