The Cougars were back in action on Saturday October 6th, in Newark Delaware. They competed in the Blue and Gold Cross Country Invitational hosted by the University of Delaware, which was run on the UD home course located in White Clay Creek State Park. The competing teams were colleges, universities, and track clubs from Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. The Cougars were one of four Region XIX junior colleges in the field that took advantage of getting a race over the challenging 6k and 8k course that will be the host site for the NJCAA Region XIX Championships, that will be held on Sunday October 28th.
The men's 8k had sophomore Chris Townsend 32:02 post his fastest White Clay Creek course time, by placing 23rd in the team scoring. Anthony Chase (33rd), Alexis Fernandez 35:52* (34th), Luke Andrzejewski (37th), and Alex Goodkind (38th) completed the team scoring, giving the Cougars a 6th place finish.
