Success at Manhattan College Cross Country Invitational.
On October 14, a group of 16 runners made their way to New York City to compete in the Manhattan College Cross Country Invitational at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, NY. The day started strong with our two entered freshman runners winning medals. Maxx Crimi ’27 finished the 1.5 mile course in 23rd place in 9:10.0 and Drew Kido ’27 followed closely in 28th place in 9:18.7. Alex Armstrong ’28 became the first FXD runner in school history to compete in the Manhattan College Cross Country Invitational. Alex finished the 1.5 mile course in 5th place out of 153 runners in a time of 9:03.2.
The JV team kept the positive momentum going on the 2.5 mile course with a 3rd place team finish out of 14 teams. All six individual runners from the JV team earned medals including Michael Hogan ’25 (2nd place), Tommy Sulivan ’25 (3rd place), Conor Belleville ’25 (16th place), Brendan Coghlan ’24 (38th place), Jack Herman ’26 (40th place), and Nolan Miley ’25 (42nd place). The varsity team finished off the day on a strong note with a 4th place team finish out of 22 teams. All seven varsity runners (Brady Armstrong ’24, Marc Leimkuehler ’24, Neilan Fahey ’25, Sam Keith ’26, Jake Edgar ’26, Michael Lenox ’25, and Quinn McCormack ’25) earned medals.
