LINCOLN, Neb. – North Dakota junior Erin Wysocki ran a career race today at Nebraska, placing seventh among 86 runners at the annual Woody Greeno/Nebraska Invitational at Pioneer Park.

Wysocki, who hails from Grand Forks, N.D., completed the 6K course in a personal-record time of 22 minutes, 24.50 seconds. It was also the fastest time ever run by a UND runner at Pioneer Park.

She helped lead UND to a sixth-place finish among eight Division I teams, placing ahead of Nebraska Omaha and Creighton.

Wichita State won the meet, while Missouri-Kansas City’s Courtney Frerichs captured medalist honors with a time of 20:57.80.

Wysocki was one of four UND runners who finished among the top half of the 86-runner field. Sophomore Lydia Lutz (Park Rapids, Minn.) and junior Jessica Lynch (Cologne, Minn.) placed 34th and 36th, respectively. Lynch ran the course in 23:45.10, while Lynch was right behind with a time of 23:49.60.

Anna Gessell, a junior from Brainerd, Minn., clocked a time of 24:00.50 and placed 42nd.
