The Muskegon Community College Jayhawks competed in the Spartan Invitational hosted by Michigan State University at Forest Akers East Golf Course in East Lansing, MI. The top finisher for the women’s team was Hannah Heintzelman (Freshman/Cedar Springs). She finished the 6k course as the 15th place NJCAA runner out of 52 finishers. Rounding out the top 5 for the women were Kendra Irvine (Reeths Puffer HS), Madison Cook (Newaygo HS), Katana Daniely (Fruitport HS), and Kelly Brown (Fruitport HS).
Mitch Johnson (Freshman/Fruitport) led the men’s team by finishing the 8k course as the 15th place NJCAA runner out of 90 finishers. The rest of the top 5 were were Tylor Carmean (Oakridge HS), Raven Lockard (Fruitport HS), Kyle Benham (North Muskegon HS), and Jake Phillips (Grand Haven HS).
“The teams ran hard but tired due to the heat, sickness (on the women’s team), and tired legs”, said Head Coach Dan Fishel. “Although the meet was unscored, we still would have beat the majority of the community college teams in the race”.
Next up will be a trip to Riverside Park in Grand Rapids for the GRCC Invite on Friday, 9/22. Race time is 3:15 pm.
