TEMPELindsay Prescott finished 22nd overall and her team defeated a nationally ranked foe as the Arizona State University women’s cross country team finished 10th overall at the 25th Roy Griak Invitational at the Les Bolstad Golf Course in Minneapolis, Minn., on Saturday morning. Running in the Jack Johnson Women’s Division I Gold 6,000m race, the Sun Devils scored 267 points on the day to finish 10th in the 29-team field and was just seven points from ninth place.
