Nick Miller continues to emerge for the Saints
Oct. 5, 2013
Siena Men's Cross Country ran 23rd of 46 teams and the women finished 43rd at Lehigh's Paul Short Run. Sophomore Nick Miller led the men's squad for a second straight race, while Christie MacFarlane again paced the women.
"I thought that given the extremely warm conditions and unusual weather we had a pretty good day all things considered," said head coach John Kenworthy. "We made the best of our opportunity at a high quality meet."
The men finished in the top half of the field and well clear of fellow MAAC member Niagara. Miller completed the men's brown 8K race in a time of 26:42, which was good for 69th overall in a 372-runner field.
"Nick has been training really well," added Kenworthy. "We expected him to be in the position he is every week. He's growing stronger and stronger and been a great leader."
Nick Grudev finished closed behind in 72nd place (26:45), while Ryan Egan also cracked the top-100 in 99th place (27:02).
MacFarlane too placed highly, finishing the women's brown 6K course in a time of 23:37 to place 79th overall in a 365-runner field.
The Saints return to the course in two weeks for the UAlbany Invitational on Oct. 19 at 11 a.m.
