The USF women's cross country squad hung with some of the top teams in the nation, while the men stayed with the pack in Saturday's Mountain Dew Invitational in Gainesville.

The USF women finished third overall out of 14 schools, just behind North Carolina and event winner Florida. The Bulls' men's team finished eighth out of 17 programs.

It was business as usual for USF's Allie Prendergast. The senior was the Bulls' top overall women's runner with a fifth-place finish. Bulls coach Dena Reif said Prendergast "went out smart" at the beginning of the 5K race, starting in the second pack.

"She didn't go out too fast and she started picking people off," Reif said.             

Her time of 17:52.69 was 33 seconds better than her previous personal record on the course in the past.

Sophomore Connor Bauer continues to lead the USF men and finished in 30th place individually with a time of 26:30.53 - almost two minutes better than his time at the 8K meet last season.

"He's running really well," Reif said.

The young USF men's team continues to improve with each race and topped a school that ran better than the Bulls in their last meet. USF's average time of 27:33.47 at the Mountain Dew Invitational was almost a minute quicker than 12th-place Nova Southeastern, which finished a place ahead of the Bulls at the USF Invitational two weeks ago.
