Congratulations, Ladies! Way to represent!!!!!
*Editor's Note: The results published were based on the 10:00am race wave. Unlike past years, this year an additional 1:00pm race wave was added to the race and those results were posted after this blog was written. Despite an extra 48 women's results being added to the combined list, the girls' overall placement only changed slightly, putting them in 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 21st out of 191 women.
