Mariel Lutz joined a select group Tuesday.

The Northampton junior became the sixth visiting harrier to break the 20-minute barrier on Amherst Regional’s 3.1-mile course.

Lutz placed first in 19:57, but Amherst won the meet 23-38.

Only 23 runners have broken 20 minutes since the course was marked in 1991. Lutz joined Monique Burlingham (Chicopee), Nadia Baadj (West Springfield), Rebecca Hunter (Northampton), Camille Blackman (Longmeadow) and Natalie Mako (Frontier Regional) in the record book.
