Penn State Cross Country Has Great Showing at Invite

Penn State men’s and women’s cross country both had very strong showings at the Notre Dame Invitational this past weekend.

The Penn State men made a big time national statement with their 5th place finish overall,  even beating five nationally ranked opponents.  The women also beat multiple top-30 ranked opponents to finish in the 10th spot in the team standings.

The men ran very well up front with Juniors Vince McNally and Kyle Dawson finishing 7th and 13th respectively.  McNally finished the 8,000 meter course in a time of  24:04 with Dawson finishing in 24:11.

The Nittany Lion women were led by Sophomore Brooklyne Ridder who finished 50th overall in a loaded womens field.  Ridder ran well and had a time of 17:31 on the 5,000 meter course.

Penn State has next weekend off but make sure to check out their next meet on the schedule, at home on Oct. 16th at the Blue and White Golf Course in the Penn State National Invitational.  The races are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.
