Dunkley 33rd at Florida State Invitational
"Kadian didn't make a personal record, but did about what I expected," said B-CU Distance Coach Garon Jackson. "I knew coming in that this was going to be the hardest 6k she's going to run."
The Florida State course at Apalachee Park will be the future site of the NCAA South Regional Championships, giving Dunkley a preview as she seeks to make a repeat post-season performance.
"Our focus was to run the course, and learn where to make moves," Jackson said. "It was our first 6k of the year and the competition was great. [Head] Coach [Donald] Cooper has set our schedule with high-quality courses to prepare the team for MEAC and more."
Dunkley and the Wildcats return to action next Friday, as B-CU travels to UCF's Black & Gold Challenge in Orlando, Fla. on Oct. 12. UCF will be the last meet before heading to the MEAC Cross Country Championships, Oct. 26-27, with Dunkley looking to defend her MEAC Individual title.
