Goule edged Barnett at the line, posting a winning time of 4:20.04. Barnett was four tenths of a second behind. The two were joined in the top five by Brianna Feerst, who ran a personal best 4:29.87.
The men’s 1500 saw a pair of Tigers record top-10 finishes with season bests. Aaron Ramirez took fifth in 3:45.43, just off his personal best. James Dwyer did record a new personal best, clocking 3:51.05 in a 10th-place run.
