JU's Bodrato Leads the Dolphins at ASUN Championship

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (www.jaxsportsday.com) - Jacksonville University women's cross country finished 12th at the Atlantic Sun Championship on Saturday morning.

The Dolphins were led by Mya Bodrato, who finished in the top-40 at Percy Warner Park, posting her fastest 5K time of the season.

"This was a true day of learning for the ladies. We had the youngest team, by far, with three sophomores and four freshmen," said Head Coach Jordon Garman. "Mya has overcome a lot of obstacles and is trending very well going into track.

"We are confident our group can get back to prominence as we mature and work."

Bodrato finished 39th overall, completing the race in 18:32.34, besting her previous best in the conference championship meet by nearly a full minute. Jordan Dix was JU's second-best finisher, with the sophomore crossing the line in 19:56.50, improving her time from a year ago by six seconds and setting a personal record. Madeline Weiler also finished in the top-100, with her time 42 seconds better than her freshman year result and a quartet of freshman all gaining valuable experience in a championship meet environment for the first time.

"Jordan ran great and was able to snag a PR on a course that is way slower than her previous PR. Madeline has been consistent and ran well today. Our freshmen did well, they have a little learning to do, but did well under pressure,"
