Cross Country Finishes At Nationals
INA, IL - Freshman Nathan Carr (Gilman, IA) turned in a time of 27:55 to lead the MCC men's cross country team at the NJCAA I Championships hosted by Rend Lake College Saturday. Carr's time placed him 71st out of 286 runners.
Sophomore Allen Davis (Melbourne, IA) finished in 234th place with a time of 30:37. Iowa Community College Conference foe Iowa Central Community College produced the top finisher, in Stanley Kebenei. Kebenei finished in a time of 25:02.
"Times were slow as a whole in the men's 8k field," said head coach Jarret Heil. "We beat some runners from our conference that we typically don't beat, but I do think we could have run a little better."
Central Arizona claimed the men's team title with 51 points. Iowa Central Community College claimed their second straight team title on the women's side with 40 points.
