Scott placed fifth with a career-best time of 4 minutes, 46.46 seconds while Bourland, running in her first collegiate outdoor meet, finished in sixth (4:49.83).
The Fords also ran well in the 3,000m as sophomore Nora Weathers took 11th in 10:33.65. Junior Charlotte Lellman placed 13th with a career-best time of 10:44.55 while seniors Flora Berklein (18th, 10:55.89) and Bridget Freeley (20th, 11:04.58) also placed in the top 20.
