ST. PAUL, Minn.- The men's and women's cross country teams at Colorado State look to continue their stride as the University of Minnesota hosts the Roy Griak Invitational in St. Paul, Minn., Saturday. Looking at their second scored meet of the season, runners hope to build on their personal bests.
So far, the Rams have a solid foundation to build off of after their first meet earlier this month. CSU junior Andrew Goodman finished in third place in the men's 5,000-meter race with a time of 14 minutes, 58.60 seconds, coming in 3.5 seconds after the winner. Goodman looks to keep his pace and build on his performance in the 8k course at the meet this week.
Senior Kaitlin Hanenburg looks to improve her times as well at the Roy Griak Invitational. Previously, Hanenburg ran 18:37.90 at the 5k Colorado State Open. Hanenburg now looks to improve her time during the women's 6k race on Saturday.
"This will be a very competitive meet for us," commented Head Coach Art Siemers. "There will be 26 women's and 24 men's teams competing."
Coming into this week's competition, the CSU men rank seventh in the Mountain Region, while the women rank eighth.
