GC ran through E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville, making a two loop circle before zig-zagging through soccer fields and finishing on a loop that had rolling hills.

Georgetown College men's cross country team finished seventh overall Saturday at the Berea Invitational, but three of the schools above the guys were NCAA opponents.
"That is the way it works in cross country and track and field," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "Most every meet or event is an open competition so you expect to see a wide variety out at something like this. What you try to do with something like this is focus on the guys performances individually and how we can improve upon that."
The Tigers had four of the five scorers finish inside the Top 50 in the race with 95 runners. Jacob Hanser led the way, finishing 17th in 28 minutes 58 seconds.
Tayler Godar finished 10 spots back, a mere 18.04 seconds, behind fellow Mid-South Conference competitor University of the Cumberlands' Danielle Hoop in her first race of the season.

Her 19 minutes 36 seconds and seven hundredths of a second finish helped the Tigers to finish 11th out of 20 teams. They were two teams behind the Patriots, both of which are NCAA schools. The split between the top five scoring runners for GC was 2:47.80
