EASTON, PA – The Rutgers women’s cross country team placed three runners in the top 25 and junior Belmax DeJesus (Fort Lee, NJ) registered her third consecutive third-place finish (20:54.45) to lead the Scarlet Knights to a third-place finish overall at the Leopard Invitational in Easton, PA, on Saturday, Oct. 18.

In addition to DeJesus, who has finished in the top 10 in all four meets this season, the Scarlet Knights had several runners contribute to the excellent finish. Freshman Nova Roman (Monroe, NJ) finished 16th (21:40.46), freshman Stephanie Zottoli (Old Bridge, NJ) finished 23rd (21:52.58), sophomore Sarah Peterson (Belle Mead, NJ) was 28th (22:04.78) and senior Jamie Kerstetter (Monroe, NJ) finished 29th (22:07.78).

“Belmax is running some very good times which will put her in excellent position going into the BIG EAST Championships,” head coach Roberta Anthes said. “I’m very happy with the team overall.”

Rutgers will have two weeks off before competing in the BIG EAST Championships on Friday, Oct. 31, at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx.
