A week after Fairfield senior Ashley Bloomquist ran down her SEC rival Abby Ryon in front of a Trojan crowd at Water Works Park in Fairfield, Ryon returned the favor by defeating Bloomquist by nearly a minute.

The Trojan leader still finished second, :36 ahead of her nearest competition, and the team came in third behind Mt. Pleasant and Muscatine.
