Men's Cross Country Finishes Second in Hagan Stone Classic on Saturday

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Pfeiffer University men’s cross country team finished second out of four division two teams in the 2010 Hagan Stone Classic held on Saturday morning in Greensboro. The Falcons finished with 44 points with Catawba, but held the tiebreaker as sixth place runner Zach Gray was the difference. 

Finishing just four points behind St. Andrews for the top spot, Will Oliver continued to lead the way with a fifth place finish in 28:55. Greg Kieler and Trey Sharpe followed, each with top-10 finishes, concluding in 29:37 and 29:41 respectively in the 8k race.

Cody Jones and Cody Bivens finished just four seconds from each other in 11th and 12th positions with times of 30:39 and 30:43. Gray, the deciding time in the tiebreaker, concluded 13th overall with his mark of 31:23. Zack Allen (16th/32:44), Grady Gaston (18th/34:41) and Nadjee Harrigan (19th/35:24) rounded out Pfeiffer’s afternoon.

“We had a much better race today,” commented head coach Scott Nolt. “Hagan Stone Park is a quicker course as I was impressed with the improvements made since last week during our great morning race. It’s the third close race we’ve had this season. I wish we could have caught St. Andrews, but I like how we are looking, especially with four freshmen and a sophomore in the top five this week.”

Pfeiffer will now head to McAlpine Park in Charlotte on October 15 for the first of three races at that venue. As the host for the Conference Carolinas meet and NCAA II Regional, McAlpine Park will host the Royals Cross Country Challenge in two weeks.
