8/31/13 – SIU-Edwardsville-Meet

On a scorching hot day in August, six Foxes headed to Edwardsville. The Edwardsville course is the same course the Sectionals use. While six left to run only one actually was able to compete. Leslie Drone took off running at a blazing pace of 6:15 for the first mile, then she dropped down to a 7:15, and finally about a 7:30 for the final mile. Unfortunately, Drone who had been sick became severely dehydrated and was unable to finish with about 200 meters to go in the race. Drone was one of 15 ladies who went to the hospital on that blazing hot morning. She was in 12th place before she collapsed.

Shortly after the girls race finished, the boys race was cancelled. We are unsure if that race will be made up or not.
