Cross Country - Wed, Sep. 12, 2012
Georgetown College men's and women's cross country team
faced a hot, humid and muggy race this past Friday in Cincinnati. The men
finished in eighth, just behind conference foe and currently ranked University
of the Cumberlands.
"For how hot it was, I was pleased with how our guys
performed," said Tiger coach Todd McDaniel. "All our scorers were in the Top 60
runners and we had three run right together, which if they can push each other
and run like that for other races that can bode really well for team scores."
Brandon Pulliam led GC with a 40th-place finish in 16
minutes 50 seconds. Then Joseph Richey, 17:14, Cole Cisneros, 17:15, and Jon
Renneker, 17:16, finished 51st, 52nd and 53rd. Tyler Doolittle was the final
scoring runner in 59th in 17:38.
In its first 5k, the women's team seventh - three spots
back from University of the Cumberlands. Tayler Godar led once again, finishing
21st overall in 20:31. Elisha Overpeck came in 36th in 21:09. Marissa Hale was
37th in 21:11. Rachel Ditto was 41st in 21:24 and Mary Jefferson rounded out
the scorers in 50th, 22:22.
"We took another step forward this weekend," said GC
coach Betsy Laski. "That is what I need to see every race. We are young, but as
long as we are learning to run well as a team and push each other we are going
to get better every race."
