The GMC Junior College Cross Country team started their season today at the Border Clash Cross County Meet hosted by Valdosta State University. Run at the beautiful Freedom Park, just outside of Valdosta, the Running Bulldogs saw how they stack up against some of the better NCAA Division II schools in Georgia and Florida.
The GMC men's ran a 6k and ran well for an early season meet. Freshmen Davis Frank (Hackettstow, NJ) finished as the fastest runner for the men's team with a time of 25:34 over the 6k course. Second place for the team went to Ty Steele (Bonnaire, GA). Aiden Kirchner, Zach St. Laurent and Alvaro Garcia were the other scoring runners for the team. The men's squad finished in 7th place.
Speaking of the team, Coach Rob Sherwood was excited. "This is my third year coaching this team and this is the best we have ever done in the opening meet of the season. I am pleased with the work the kids put in over the summer." He continued, "I am pleased with the way the men ran. This should be a fun season!"
The GMC Bulldogs next run on 8 September at the camps of Middle Georgia State University in Macon, GA. Races start at 8am.
