Colby, KS - The No. 13 Hastings College women's cross country team got the 2017 season kicked off on the right foot by claiming first place at the Colby Invite on Friday evening.

Janelle Bethea (SR/Glendale, AZ) led the way with a time of 19:56 with Heidi Hennings (JR/Ritzville, WA) right behind her at 20:02. Maddy Smith (SR/Littleton, CO) in at 20:11 and Sam Crossett (SO/Sandpoint, ID) finishing in 20:40. Rounding out the top five for the Broncos was Jessie Johnson (SR/Bailey, CO) as she finished with a time of 20:45.
Hastings will be back in action Saturday Sept. 9 hitting the road to take part in the Defender Classic hosted by Dordt in Sioux Center, IA.
