True freshman Laura Hollander won the prestigious Wisconsin Adidas Invitational on Friday. She covered the 6 kilometer course in a record-setting time of 19:33. Hollander guided the Mustangs to a 32nd place finish in a loaded field, while the men's team finished 30th behind senior David Cardona's 68th place finish.
The race took place at the Thomas Zimmer Cross Country Course and was hosted by the University of Wisconsin.
Hollander and the Mustangs completed against a 48 team field that included 28 ranked teams. The unranked Mustangs finished ahead of 23rd ranked Indiana, which came in 35th.
Hollander edged Iowa State senior Betsy Saina by 2 seconds and Weber State's Amber Henry by 10 seconds.
She broke the previous record time by 20 seconds that was set in 2010 and beat two women, who finished in the top 10 at the 2011 NCAA Championships.
Mission Prep graduate Annie Mooney, a sophomore at UCLA, finished in 142nd place with a time of 21:03.
Iowa State won the women's team title followed by Stanford, Arizona and Washington.
