Men's Cross Country Runs At Paul Short Invitational

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Quinnipiac University men's cross country team ran at the Paul Short Invitational held at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. on Friday, Oct. 1. The 37th annual Invitational had over 5,000 runners from 230 colleges and high schools scheduled to compete in races throughout the day. The Bobcats finished in 33rd place out of 40 teams in the Men's College Brown 8K Race. Sophomore Mike Levene (Redding, Conn.) finished in 37th place overall and was Quinnipiac's top finisher with a time of 26:15.

Brian Cotter (Huntington, N.Y) crossed the finish line next for Quinnipiac in 27:10. With a time of 27:37, John Healy (Middletown, N.J.) was the Bobcats' third finisher. Jacob Cetera (Chicago, Ill.) and John Beckshaw (Medford, Mass.) were Quinnipiac's next two runners to finish in 27:48 and 28:15, respectively.

"We've been working really hard throughout the season, but we're not going to see the benefits until we start to taper down into the season," said Head Coach Carolyn Martin. "We're hoping our hard work will carry through to the Northeast Conference Championships and Regionals."

The Bobcats are scheduled to run at the New England Championships at Franklin Park in Boston, Mass. at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9.
