"The men did well tonight in not so ideal conditions. It was cold and started to rain on us later in the evening. Everyone we brought on the men's side, with the exception of one scored this evening. Kyle Robinson was in a very large and very competitive open 3,000-meter race. He ran well this evening and is in great position to have a PR performance in the 10k at conference. I am looking forward to what these guys will accomplish this upcoming weekend at the conference meet", said Coach Stoffel.
The Bearcats travel to Pittsburgh, PA for the River States Conference Championship Meet. The meet is April 29th with the first events starting at 9:30am.
