PATRIOT MEN RUN AT LOUISVILLE, WILMINGTON

              The St. Catharine men’s cross country team recently ran in the Greater Louisville Classic and the Wilmington College (Ohio) Invitational. The Patriots did not send a full team to Louisville but at Wilmington (October 12) they sent seven runners and finished 30th in the 32 team field.

            Austin Middleton, a freshman from England, set a new school record on the 8K course at Wilmington with a time of 30:00.3. That bettered Troy Mattingly’s previous record of 30:08. Mattingly, still hampered with a leg injury, ran a 32:48 at Wilmington. Ed Lucey ran 32:02, a personal best. Rounding out the top five for the Patriots were Austin Spees (33:47) and Andre Jacomini (36:25).

          At Louisville, on September 29, all Patriot runners ran a personal best except for Mattingly. Middleton finished in 30:49, Spees in 32:47, Mattingly in 32:28 and Lucey in 32:58.

          The Patriots’ next meet is October 20th when they travel to Berea for the Southeastern Classic.
