The Muskegon Community College Cross-Country teams raced Friday at Michigan State University along with 30 other colleges. The Jayhawk women’s team was the 3rd place JUCO finisher and 20th overall. The Jayhawks were lead once again by Maddy Windberg (Spring Lake HS) followed by Grace Sweet (Reeths-Puffer HS). Also scoring were Ellie Nausiadis (Newaygo HS), Adele Cory (Mona Shores HS), and Haylee Ray (Grand Haven HS).
“For most of the team it was their first 6k and again in very warm conditions,” said Coach Mike Smith. “I was proud of how they took some chances. Maddy’s 6K time of 25:18 places her 6th on the all time Jayhawk 6K and Grace’s time of 26:29 puts her 13th. I felt Ellie and Hayle also made strides forward during the race to help the team finish higher.”
Next up the Jayhawks will compete in the Grand Rapids Community College Invite on Friday, 9/21 at Riverside Park.
