The Rowan College mens' and women's cross country teams faced some tough hills after a hard week of training at the DeSales Invitational in Center Valley, PA on October 8th.
The men split the competition, placing 14th in the 28 team field. This was the largest meet of the season for the teams, and it served as a good test to the legs due to the challenging hills. The field was so large, that only three RCGC athletes cracked the top 100 runners; with Jake Caruso (last week National Runner of the Week) placing 25th, Mike Dowd taking 50th, and James Kennedy coming home in 66th.
In the ladies race, both Abigayle Warren and Allison Bone had amazing performances, with their times being very respectable considering the conditions.
Next up for the Roadrunners is the JUCO Northeast Championships hosted by CCRI in Providence Rhode Island scheduled for October 21.
