I think “Not Brian” may have been pointing out that “33th” is not a thing.

Also, it also may be useful to offer a bit of an explanation of the scoring for the team results: the number of points that each runner counts is equal to their place in the competition with all of the at-large, unattached runners removed from the standings (low score wins). Because you have to be ‘pretty good’ to make it as an at-large, rather than as part of a time, there tend to be plenty of them at the top.

So while Emily Infield did finish 4th overall, she only counted for 3 points because the third-place finisher was an at-large runner from Dartmouth and thus doesn’t count in the team standings. Claire Richardson was actually the 50th finisher, but she counts for 33 points because 17 of the runners who finished ahead of her were at-large. Emily Jones was actually 54th, Kirsten Kasper finished in 64th place, and Katrina Koogan was the 67th overall finisher.

Maybe one year we’ll have facilities… and a track… but I digress, this is great for the program that has consistently come just shy in recent years. Congrats!

“…finishing between 33th and 46th place”
