Men's Cross Country - Sat, Oct. 2, 2010
Georgetown College men's cross country team finished seventh out of 29 teams in the Greater Louisville Classic, as first-year coach Todd McDaniel's team had a record setting day.
The Tigers ran in the silver race and almost everyone had a personal best.
Scott Ritter led the way for the Tigers, finishing 11th in 26 minutes 38 seconds.
In just a little more than a minute later, Brandon Pulliam finished in 46th in 27:40. Tyler Doolittle was the next Tiger to finish in 52nd in 27:47. Corey Hatfield crossed in 28 flat for 62nd and Tanner Alexander was the last scoring runner for GC to cross in 67th with a time of 28:08.
"They all ran well today," McDaniel said. "It was a good day and I'm really excited."
Michael Bailey's 29:20 and Todd Bixler's 29:51, rounded out GC's top seven runners. But, McDaniel was also very pleased with how his other runners were pushing themselves Saturday.
Joe Cox, 29:53, Cody Polzin, 30:14, Peyton Anderson, 31:36, Reid Stivers, 31:40, and Mark Scout, 34:58, also competed.
The Tigers beat all the Mid-South Conference opponents in the race and after moving up to third in the conference this past week, may jump another spot after Saturday's race.
"I think all but maybe two of my guys had personal bests today," McDaniel said. "It was just a great race."
There were three races on the day with more than 100 colleges on hand to compete.
