Titans are ranked 17th in the nation
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – The Eastern Florida State College men’s cross country team placed 19th overall in the FSU Invite at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee on Friday.
The Titans, who are ranked 17th nationally, were led by sophomore Dayton Law who finished the 8K race in 26 minutes, 41.2 seconds. Teammate Simon Devoss finished in 27:09.0 and Trevor Cross ran a 27:37.2 while Carter Vigneri finished at 27:56.7.
Gabriel Garcia ran the race in 28:15.7 with Nicholas Spence running his best race of the season, finishing in 28:18.4. Matthew Weiler also ran his season-best time, finishing in 29:04.5 as did teammate Ethan Heise who ran a 29:36.5. Chase Hill also finished in 29 minutes, crossing at 29:56.
Christian Calderon finished in 30:19.4, with Anthony Bergnes (31:53) and Colin McAdams (32:41.3) also competing for the Titans.
“We have been inconsistent so far this year, Nicholas stepped up and ran a good race today. My faster group of guys still aren’t competing to their levels and hopefully when we come up here in a couple weeks we can do that,” Eastern Florida State College men’s cross country coach Doug Butler said. “We have high standards and we are not anywhere near where we want to be.”
Eastern Florida State College will turn to the FSC Invite at Holloway Park in Lakeland on Friday, Oct. 13.
