Isabella Leak turned in her second straight top-10 performance for Monmouth Saturday, placing 4th of 87 runners at the Jasper Fall Invitational.
Leak ran 22:23 over the 6,000-meter course at Twin Ponds at the Farm in Montgomery, Orange County, N.Y. That’s 18:39 5,000 pace for another 1,000 meters.
Leak, a sophomore from Egg Harbor Township, ran 4:41.70 for 1,500 meters as a freshman last spring. Her 22:23 is an all-course 6,000 PR, 20 seconds faster than she ran at Paul Short at Lehigh last fall.
Monmouth finished first in the eight-team race with 25 points, going 3-4-5-6-7 and packing its five scorers in 16 seconds. Leak was Monmouth’s No. 2 runner, finishing four seconds behind sophomore Marisa Kilgarrif from Council Rock South in Richboro, Pa.
Monmouth was ranked 12th in the initial NCAA Division 1 Mid-Atlantic Region rankings.
