MEN'S CROSS COUNTRY EARNS THIRD-PLACE FINISH AT BRUCE KIRSH CROSS COUNTRY CUP
RINDGE, N.H. – Paced by four different racers finishing inside the top-15, the Merrimack College men's cross country team finished third overall on Saturday afternoon at the Kirsch Cross Country Cup hosted by Franklin Pierce University.
Finish: Merrimack (3rd/9)
Location: Franklin Pierce Cross Country Course | Rindge, N.H.
Coming off last week's second-place finish at the Shacklette Invitational, Merrimack placed third after a combined time of 1:32:05, finishing behind host Franklin Pierce and runner-up American International in the nine-team field.
What They Said
Head Coach Chris Cameron: "I thought the men gave us a really solid effort today. We didn't run our full team, we've got a few individuals still working their way back into the lineup from injuries, but we had a nice, tight pack in our top-five and, overall, it was a real good effort. When we get back to full strength we'll continue to move up in the standings."
Merrimack will enjoy an off week next weekend before returning to the course on Saturday, Sept. 28, when it participates in the Cod Fish Bowl Invitational at Franklin Park in Boston.
