Women's Cross Country / Freshman / Basking Ridge, N.J.
Kaitlyn Van Baalen is a first-year runner on the Maroon women's cross country team.
Head Coach Chris Hall: "Kaitlyn clearly had her best performance of the season. While our team had four All-Region runners, Kaitlyn was the all-important fifth runner that completed our day. Placing 39th overall in the toughest region in the country is a great accomplishment for a first-year. I felt Kaitlyn competed exceptionally well from mile two to three in particular. As other runners were beginning to fade, she just kept moving up and was our fifth runner for the first time this season."
