Leading the Knights was Bobby Allen (Cranston, RI) who placed 28th for 27 points in a time of 26 minutes 58 seconds over a muddy hard Franklin Park 8k course. Cole Maguire (Foster, RI) placed 170th for 105 points in his first race of the season with a good starting time of 30:32. Isaiah Hector (Warwick, RI) ran for 228th place for 139 points with a fine time of 32:27 and Stefan Cox (West Kingston, RI) placed 258th for 158 points)in a time of 35:03. Rounding out the Knights’ squad was Chris Mann (West Warwick, RI) running his first Cross Country race in over four years ran strong with a 269th for 165 points place in a time of 36:15. Individually, the race was won by Rich Peters from Boston University in a time of 25:11.
Head Coach Gregg Cornell commented after the race “It was nice to see the men work as a team. The guys were upset with their times but with warm muggy conditions over a sloppy tough course they held their own.”
The Knights’ next meet will be this Saturday October 1st when they host the Tri-State Invitational on the CCRI Flanagan Campus in Lincoln, the men start at 10:00am and the women at 11:00am.
