Maryland cross country completed its regular season with the women’s 6K race at the Penn State National Open in State College, Pennsylvania last Friday.

It was the fourth of four fall competitions for head coach Andrew Valmon’s Terps, who also participated in events at Goucher, Navy and Lehigh.

“This race will propel us into post season competition,” Valmon said in a release. “The goal now is to put our best foot forward for the championship segment of our season. I know this group is ready to show up.”

Senior Anna Coffin shined Friday, pacing the Terps with a 21:47.1 finish. Sophomore Katie Altieri, Maryland’s second-leading scorer on the day, was right there with Coffin with a final time of 21:47.2.

After a couple weeks without competition, Maryland will look to take another step forward at the Big Ten Cross Country Championship in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Oct. 28.
