It didn't turn out quite like they hoped, but there was a silver lining at the end anyway.
Tessa Barrett ended up a DNF, although I did see her listed among the leaders until the 4K mark, right with her 2 teammates, Jillian Hunsberger and Elizabeth Chikotas. There hasn't been an explanation forthcoming, but we all hope Tessa is OK. With the loss of their #1 runner, PSU finished a disappointing 18th in the team competition.
Elizabeth Chikotas ended up in 15th place and Jillian Hunsberger 36th. That makes for 2 All-Americans for PSU!
