BRUNSWICK, Maine – After a two-week layoff, the Endicott men's cross country team got back to work at the Bowdoin Invitational, held at the Pickard Cross Country course, and finished fourth out of seven programs while multiple runners recorded personal bests.
Senior Zach Marshall (Hinesburg, Vt.) paced Endicott in the field of 91 runners, crossing the finish line at 12th place (27:10.3). Marshall was followed closely by junior Patrick Finocchiaro (Salem, N.H.) in 14th place (27:32.5) while sophomores Will Connelly (Barrington, R.I.), Adam Germaine (Guilford, Conn.), and Brian King (Stow, Mass.) rounded out the top five scorers.
King's time of 29:08.9 on the 8-kilometer course led a group of five Gulls that set personal bests. Also in that group were sophomore Jack McGuire (Hopkinton, Mass.) at 29:18.0, senior Nicholas Canniff (Arlington, Mass.) at 29:46.5, freshman Gabe Marty (Keene, N.H.) at 31:14.8, and freshman Declan Keenan (Durham, Conn.) at 33:33.0.
