The Butler men’s and women’s cross country teams both won the Butler Twilight Meet at Northview Church in Carmel, Indiana on Aug. 30. 

Emily Royston, a junior transfer from UW-Milwaukee, led the lady bulldogs, crossing the line in 17:20.6 for 5K. Over 20 seconds behind her, Angelina Ellis finished in second place with a time of 17:42.3. 

Following Ellis were Corinna Pena, Margo Hornocker, and Kara Stark, who finished in 18:23.8, 18:39.1 and 18:47.9 respectively to round out the scoring five runners. 

The women scored 28 points to top Ball State and IUPUI. 

Junior Clark Otte won the men’s race in 18:14.9 over 6K. Just like in the women’s race, another bulldog would come not far behind him, James Sweeny took second place in 18:30.3. 

Rounding out the top 5 scorers for the dawgs were Jackson Martin, Eric Baugh and Daniel Lawton coming across in 18:38.8, 18:47.8 and 19:01.9 respectively. 

The men scored 22 points to top the Jags of IUPUI and the Little Giants of Wabash.
