WATERVILLE, Maine --- Deb Aitken and her Colby College women's cross country team won the State of Maine Division III Women's Cross Country Championship for the 10th time in program history and for the fifth time in the past six years on the Mules' home course on Saturday.

The Mules finished with a score of 31 to hold off second place Bowdoin (44).

Colby's Katrina Gravel won the state women's individual title with a course-record clocking of 18 minutes, 59.50 seconds over the 5-kilometer course. Colby teammate Emma Linhard was second in 19:16.30 and the Mules' Greta Wells had one of her best collegiate finishes ever with a 19:34.50 for third place.

"We had a talk this week as a team about how we were under-performing so far this year and as a team we needed to step up," Aitken said. "We did that across the board today."

Lindsay Hodge of Bowdoin took fourth in 19:35 and teammate Christina Argueta took fifth in 19:36.0. Esther Kendall of Bates was sixth in 19:36.80 and teammate Katherine Bash took seventh in 19:37.80.

Mandy Ivey placed 10th for the Mules with a time of 19:41.30 and first-year runners Layne Schwab and Berol Dewdney had solid performances in their first state meets. Schwab was 15th in 20:11.50 and Dewdney was right behind her in 16th  with a 20:14.10. Nora McCall made it seven Colby runners in the top 20 by placing 19th in 20:19.30.

Jessica Mullaney took 25th place for the Mules in 20:42.20 and was followed by teammates Abby Cheruiyot in 26th with a 20:43.20 and Monica Davis in 27th in 20:44.30.
