Donahue, a native of East Aurora, ran a 35:55.69 for the ninth-place finish and second-team All-American status.

She won the 10,000-meters at the East Coast Conference Championship meet, and received NCAA Division II All-Region honors in both the 10,000-meter and 5,000-meter distances for the second consecutive season.
