Cross Country - Sat, Nov. 19, 2011

(Vancouver, Wash.) The NAIA Cross Country National meet returned to Fort Vancouver Historic Site for the third year and for the first time the weather was ideal for racing. The rain from the previous three days softened the course, but the forecasted snow stayed in the mountains. The temperature at race time was a crisp 40 degrees with no wind.

Cornerstone returned three men who ran in the 2010 race and they took advantage of the conditions, running well over one minute faster and placing 50 to 60 places higher.

As they have all season the CU men stayed close to each other with the first three separated by just ten seconds and the fourth only 30 seconds back.

Junior, Travis Mabe reached the finish 99th in a personal best 25:44, 1:26 and 61 places better than 2010. Sophomore, Louis Falland was just four second off his best, clocking 25:49 in 110th place in his first national meet. Junior, Jared Courtright improved 1:22 and 52 spots from last year with his 25:54 effort in 120th. Classmate, Cody Risch was 1:38 and 60 places better than 2010 placing 182nd in 26:24.
