Maryland cross country won the Baltimore Metro Meet on Friday, the team’s first competition of the season.
As a team, the Terps finished with 23 points, nine lower than second-place Johns Hopkins. Points are totaled by adding up the final placements of each team’s individuals, meaning that higher placements in the event equal fewer points.
Maryland placed five runners in the top 10 of the 89-person five-kilometer race hosted by Goucher College — Anna Coffin (second), Rose Coats (third), Katie Altieri (fourth), Sophia Zell (sixth) and Katie Turk (10th). Coffin’s team-best time was 18:03.75, and all five Terps who placed in the top 10 finished in under 19 minutes.
The top time of any runner belonged to Sara Stephenson of Johns Hopkins, who clocked in at 17:59.50.
Next, Maryland will compete in the Navy Invitational on Sept. 9.
