The Chiefs' Emma McSpadden finished second overall, earning All-Region honors and qualifying for the NJCAA Division I National Meet on Nov. 11 in Fort Dodge, Iowa. The men's team placed second overall in a tight race for the team title, falling 55-57 to Moraine Valley Community College. The second place finished earned the entire Chiefs' men's team a birth in the national meet.
