Men's Cross Country - Sat, Oct. 16, 2010

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (10/16) Historically, the Manchester Invitational has been the place to run fast. This year was no exception as the Cornerstone Men's Cross Country team set six personal bests on their way to winning the meet.

Zach Ripley won his third meet of the season, this time with a 63 second margin over teammate Alex Green. Ripley's time of 24:30 was a personal best and just 18 seconds off Derek Scott's course record from 2007.

Behind Green, Jared Courtright lowered his best time to 26:17 in 6th with Cody Risch just two seconds off his PR in 8th (26:24). Travis Mabe chopped 44 seconds off his previous best placing 11th in 26:37.

Peter Kaijala (26:56 / 17th), Kris Shear (27:20 / 23rd) and Zach Bourdon (27:37 / 34th) also ran personal bests.

Cornerstone's 28 points put them ten ahead of their hosts for the win with Goshen third with 77 in the field of eight teams.

The Golden Eagles will get a preview of the WHAC meet on October 23 at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids.
