Lacy, a Marlton native now based in Boise, Idaho, covered the challenging 21K course on Kualoa Ranch in Kapalua, Hawaii, in 1:41.05. She finished fourth out of 80 women and 16th overall among 204 entrants.
World Mountain champion Grayson Murphy, a former XC All-America at Utah, was the women’s winner, covering the 13.05-mile course in 1:31.18. Bailey Kowalczyk (1:38.35) and Katherine Short (1:38.36) placed second and third. Lacy finished a minute and a half ahead of 5th-place finisher Sam Lewis.
