CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – The Salisbury University men's and women's cross country teams got a preview of the course of DeSales University, the host of this year's NCAA Mideast Regional, and came away with positive results. The Gulls saw their women's team take a fourth place finish in their race while the men took sixth in theirs, out of 23 teams.
Senior Becca Stinner led the way for the Salisbury women, taking 15th individually with a time of 25:11. Freshman Hailey Spinapont was Salisbury's second runner across the line, finishing in a time of 25:15 to take 16th place, her best finish away from Salisbury.
