BRONX, N.Y. – The Endicott men's cross country team finished first overall among 12 other programs at the York College Invitational on Sunday morning, hosted at historic Van Cortlandt Park.
Endicott brought home the victory by tallying 31 points, while CCNY finished second (62) and Baruch was third (69). The remainder of the standings included John Jay (88), Dominican (N.Y.) (109), Bridgeport (197), Yeshiva (215), York (N.Y.) (239), Sarah Lawrence (261), Queensborough CC (263), St. Joseph's College (Bklyn) (296), Brooklyn (331), and Concordia (N.Y.) (338).
Individually, for the Gulls, Adam Germaine (Guilford, Conn.) was in front of the pack finishing in third place (30:28). Right behind Germaine was Jack McGuire (Hopkinton, Mass.) who placed fourth overall (30:40), while Zachary Heffernan (Biddeford, Maine) finished seventh (31:23), Marcus Poccia (West Greenwich, R.I.) ranked 10th (31:57), and Will Connelly (Barrington, R.I.) followed in 12th (32:09).
"We had a spectacular weekend all around. The team had a great attitude and embraced the opportunity to race at such a historic and challenged course," said Endicott men's cross country head coach Spencer Lange. "As a program, walking away with two team wins and an individual victory from Holly Fossa was all we could've asked for. More importantly, both teams fought and grinded for those spots together. They've both have been working hard and we're excited for what's to come later in the season."
