"We've had an up and down season, which can happen when you are young and dealing with injuries," said men's coach Todd McDaniel. "We ran solid Saturday, but it just wasn't good enough this time around."
Both teams are fairly young and then the veteran runners have been hampered with injuries most of the season. However, both teams have shown great progress through the season and even dominated on a very tough course in unusual heat at the late season race hosted by Kentucky State University. The women's team posted an eye-popping perfect score, while the men's was an impressive win as well with a near perfect score.
Georgetown College women's cross country continued its solid ways Saturday. The Tigers scored 49 points and finished fifth in the Southeastern Classic in Berea, after running a perfect race more than a week ago in Frankfort.
Tayler Godar led the way again with an eighth place finish in 19 minutes 38 seconds. The freshman was more than two minutes off the pace of fellow Mid-South Conference runner Sharon Ronoh, a senior at Lindsey Wilson College. However, in the team portion the Tigers edged the Blue Raiders, which finished sixth on the day. University of the Cumberlands had the best MSC team finish taking second in the 10 team race.
Georgetown College's Cole Cisneros set a course record this past Friday, earning him his first Mid-South Conference Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week honors for the week ending in Oct. 13.
The freshman won the Kentucky State University Invitational, while leading the team to a near perfect score. The Carmel, Ind. Native ran 8,000 meters in 27 minutes and 57 seconds, 13 seconds faster than his closest competition - Nicholas Hall of Morehouse.
Georgetown College men's and women's cross country teams destroyed the hilly course and blew all the competition away Friday in Frankfort.
The Tigers see a bright future coming off near perfect races in the Kentucky State meet. The women had six of the top seven runners, while the men had seven of the top 11. Tayler Gador won the race to lead the women in a perfect score 15 points. Cole Cisneros won the men's race and the men finished close to perfection with a 20.
"It was an awesome day," said Tiger men's coach Todd McDaniel. "It was a tough course, very hilly. But, it is exactly what Betsy (Laski, women's coach) felt was coming for these young teams. We need to use this and build on it heading into the last couple of races of the season."
Georgetown College men's and women's cross country team will be racing in Georgetown's back yard this Friday afternoon with a chance for its best finish all season.
"We are really exciting to be competing in this race hosted by Kentucky State University," said men's coach Todd McDaniel."
The women's race starts at 3:15 pm in Frankfort with the men to follow after the finish. The course will be at the Library and Archives just off the East-West Connector.
