St. Paul – Select members of the Gustavus Adolphus track and field team got some mid-week competition in at the Hamline University Twilight Meet held at Klas Field on Wednesday night.
The distance runners took advantage of a chance to compete in the 10,000-meter run, as all five Gustie competitors ran in what was the longest race of the night. On the men’s side, Joseph Renier (Jr., Cambridge, Minn.) led the pack of four Gustavus men with a second place finish in 32:34.84. Adam Lund (Sr., Burnsville, Minn.) crossed the finish line in fifth (33:40.99), while Nate Hanson (Fr., Stillwater, Minn.) placed behind him in sixth (34:27.26). Leighton Becher (So., Woodbury, Minn.) rounded out the group in seventh (34:37.31).
Rebecca Hare (So., Albany, Minn.) was the lone female competitor at the meet for the Gusties. Hare also ran in the 10,000-meter, finishing fifth with a time of 38:24.64.
The Gustavus track and field team will be in action this weekend when it hosts the Drake Alternative/Alumni Meet on Saturday, April 27 in St. Peter, Minn.
