The honor was the third of Reich's career as she also earned the honor once each in 2006 and 2007.

Reich ran a personal best time of 18:16 and led DePauw to a fifth place overall finish and tops among the non-Division I schools. Reich was the Little State individual champion and finished eighth overall. Her finish was the highest ever by a DePauw female runner in this meet. Reich’s time is also second on DePauw’s all-time 5,000-meter list.

The Tigers, ranked 22nd in the latest Division III poll, return to action on Saturday, September 26, at the Otterbein Invitational.
