“I just kept thinking of all my girls, my team, that’s all I thought about,” Bryson said after the meet. “I gave it everything.”

Bryson, who finished 31st overall at the NCAA Division III Championships a year ago, improved by seven spots from her debut year. She turned in a time of 21:09.9 for the eight-kilometer course, about 34 seconds faster than in her rookie season in Wisconsin. Bryson was part of a pack of four runners who crossed the line at the same time.

Bryson becomes just the fifth woman in school history to win multiple All-America honors in cross country. She joins Nicole Fogarty ‘89, Jean Olds Cann ‘92, Theresa Patten ‘94 and Mariko Tansey Holbrook Neveu ‘03. She was the fourth finisher from New England in this year’s race – after finishing 12th at the New England Regional – and fourth among University Athletic Association runners – after placing third at the conference championships.

Bryson was also the seventh sophomore to cross the line.
