The Georgia College men’s cross country team traveled to Minneapolis to compete in the Roy Griak Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota. The team ran well, placing 15th out of 37 in the Division II 8K race.

The Bobcat men had two runners place within the top-50 overall.

Senior James Ryden (Atlanta, Georgia) once again led the team and finished 39th with a time of 27:26. Ryden also led the team last week with his personal-record setting performance at Furman. Classmate Paul McNeil (Dunwoody, Georgia) finished in 46th place with a time of 27:32.

Senior Michael Warrick (Marietta, Georgia) finished 76th in 27:57, and junior Matt Sutton (Norcross, Georgia) took 122nd in 28:42. Senior Trevor Turner(Snellville, Georgia) finished in 29:02.

“Our men went out and executed their race plan almost flawlessly on some tired legs,” said head coach Steven Cary. “They finished fifteenth among some very good teams. The confidence the men have right now is outstanding.”

This marks the second-straight meet that the team has placed within the top-15 overall. The average team time was 28:08. Of the race field, two are in the latest national rankings, including No. 19 Black Hills State University, the race winner. The Bobcats beat No. 9 Minnesota State University, the team finishing in 20th place.

The next meet for the Bobcat men will be Saturday, Oct. 10 as they host the Division II Georgia Collegiate Championships, a Bobcat home meet on the new Council Farm Course.
