|Andrew Benford (UR '11) last year at the |
NCAA Cross Country Championships.
In the 6 man relay race, Benford ran the 6.4 kilometer 4th leg in the 6th fastest time (19:05) on the day out of the 21 participating teams.
Benford Quote: "We placed 8th as a team! Our highest placing ever, meaning that the team will automatically be invited back next year. I got the sash in 10th, and ran 19:05 for my leg to hand off in 9th, which was the 6th fastest out of 21 for my leg. Our anchor, Jon Grey, got the sash in 10th and caught two runners to bring us back up to 8th. Have to shower quick and head to the after race celebration. Will follow up with more later..."
