Men’s Cross Country Places 5th at Dan Huston Invite

Posted on October 11th, 2003 by

The Gustavus men’s cross country squad placed fifth at the Dan Huston Invitational hosted by Wartburg College on Saturday in Waverly, Iowa.
The invite followed a format used for US & World Cross Country Championships. There were two varsity races for each gender. The long races for both genders were the normal 8,000 meter (men) and 6,000 meter (women) racing distances. In addition to the normal racing distances, there were also shorter races at 4,000 meters for men and women. Each race was scored separately. The overall champion was determined for each gender by adding the scores of the long and short races .

Gustavus placed sixth in the 8K race, which featured many of the best runners from each of the schools at the competition. Dan Westlund, who finished 16th overall with a time of 28:03, was the first Gustie to cross the finish line..

Head Coach Scott Jerome’s squad ran fifth in the 4K race. Jahred Stephens placed 26th overall.

The Gusties finished with 292 combined points in the two races. Wartburg won with 86 points.

Gustavus returns to action on October 24 by Macalester in a dual meet.
