EASTON-Senior Angela Borealo (Easton/Easton) took first place in the women's 6k race as the Bloomsburg University women's cross country team finished third at the Leopard Invitational at Lafayette College. The men's team took fifth place overall.
Borealo paced the women's side with a time of 21:48. Close behind in fourth was senior Andrea Kellock (Lansdale/North Penn) with a time of 21:56. Sophomore Katilyn Meck (Dillsburg/Northern) came in at 22:01, good for sixth place overall. Rounding out the top seven for the Huskies was freshman Vicki Davis (Schuylkill Haven/Schuylkill Haven) at 23:09, sophomore Kaitlyn McShay (Springfield/Cardinal O'Hara) at 23:24, sophomore Samantha Rhood (Downingtown/Downingtown West) at 23:28 and freshman Krista Donsen (Hanover/South Western) at 23:29.
On the men's side, sophomore Bobby Furman (Broomall/Maple Newtown) led the Huskies with a seventh place finish in a time of 26:31 on the 8k course. Senior Misha Litvinov (Drums/Hazelton Area) came in 10th with a time of 26:33; sophomore Dave Moyer (Boyertown/Boyertown) finished at 27:29; junior Jarod Arnold (Philadelphia/Engineering & Science) came in at 27:33; sophomore Kevin Grier (Downingtown/Downingtown West) finished with a time of 28:02; junior Austin Martzall (Myerstown/ELCO) finished at 28:03; and freshman Nick Patton (Canton/Canton) finished with a time of 28:13.
"I was very happy with how our teams handled the less than ideal conditions today," coach Bernie Empie said after the meet. "Our men's team is beginning to close the gap between one and seven and our women's team is looking solid with three front runners."
"I am looking forward to the PSAC meet in two weeks," Empie continue. "Both teams look poised to have strong showings and today obviously showed we are capable of handling adverse conditions. There is a good chance we might see similar weather in Edinboro. I am confident we will be ready!"
The Huskies will head to Edinboro for the PSAC Championships on Saturday, October 31.
