    West Lafayette, IN - Four Indiana runners - Kelly Siefker, Larra Overton, Valerie Rago and Allison Miller - each finished among the top 16 at the Purdue Alumni Superstition Open Friday afternoon in West Lafayette. This is the same cross country course that will host the Nov. 3 Big Ten Championships.

    Siefker was the Hoosiers' top finisher, taking third place after covering the 5K course in 19:14.8. Siefker is a highly-touted freshman track athlete who is in her first year of cross country after playing soccer each fall in high school. Friday's 5K performance was 25 seconds better than her time of 19:39 at the Aug. 30 Indiana Open.

    Siefker's classmate, Overton, was three spots behind her at 19:26.6. This marks a 45-second improvement from two weeks ago. Rago was 13th at 20:10.6, and Miller was 16th at 20:17.7.

    The Hoosiers return to action Sept. 20 at the Indiana Intercollegiates in Bloomington. The open race starts at 3:45 p.m., followed by the women's 5K at 4:45 and the men's 8K at 5:10.
