The Muskegon Community College Cross-Country teams raced Friday at Michigan State University along with 30 other colleges. The Jayhawk men’s team was the 2nd place JUCO finisher and 18th overall. Leading the way was Kyle Benham (North Muskegon HS), followed by Cameron Jones (Boone Grove, IN), Michael Hyatt (Orchard View HS), Chase Eslick (North Muskegon HS) and Caleb Sidock (Orchard View HS).
“Given the extreme heat and wet/soft course the times were slower than expected, but I felt the effort and experience gained will pay off later in the season,” said coach Mike Smith. “The freshman got to experience their first 8k and in a huge race atmosphere. Kyle ran a brave race and Cameron (Lou) ran a smart race.”
The Jayhawks next compete in the Grand Rapids Community College Invite on Friday, 9/21 at Riverside Park.
