Men's Cross Country Takes First in College Division at Woody Greeno/Nebraska Invitational
The Truman men's cross country team on Saturday won its third straight meet to start the season, this time taking first in the college division of the Woody Greeno/Nebraska Invitational in Lincoln, Neb.
Truman, which had three runners finish in the top 30, ended with a score of 55 to top second-place Minnesota State-Mankato by 12 spots. Central Missouri State was third with a score of 83 and Augustana (S.D.) finished fourth with 116.
Much like he'd done through the first two meets of the season, junior Andy Doering (Florissant, Mo./McCluer North) was the Bulldogs' leading finisher. He placed third in the division, and ninth overall, with a time of 25:37.00. Junior Ben Rosario (St. Louis, Mo./SLUH) finished sixth in the division, 16th overall, with a time of 25:55.10. Senior Nick Blackburn (St. Charles, Mo./Francis Howell) placed 13th among the college ranks, 30th overall, in 26:20.90.
Blackburn was followed by junior Matt Helbig (Fenton, Mo./Rockwood Summit), who was 16th in the division and 35th overall, with a time of 26:25.70. Junior Brian McQueary (St. Louis, Mo./St. Mary's) rounded out the top five for Truman, placing 17th in the division, 37th overall, in 26:26.80.
The 'Dogs will get an extended break from competition before taking aim at their fourth straight win. The team is next scheduled to compete on Oct. 6 when the Bulldogs travel to South Bend, Ind., for the Notre Dame Invitational.
