Cross-country hosts Tuesday meet

On Tuesday, the Lords and Ladies cross-country teams ran in what Coach Duane Gomez characterized as the team’s “warm-up” for the 2015 season. The team competed with Ohio Wesleyan University in a shortened home meet that showed off the first-year talent that the teams added with the Class of 2019.

Both teams appear poised to make strong leaps coming off a season during which the Lords finished eighth and the Ladies finished seventh in the NCAC championship meet. This season, Samantha White ’16 and Susannah Davies ’18 return for the Ladies, who were Kenyon’s top two finishers at the Great Lakes Regional meet and All-Ohio Championships last year and will most likely anchor the Ladies this season. First year Quinn Harrigan started off her collegiate career in style, topping the competition in the women’s 4K on Tuesday with a time of 16:25.

Meanwhile, the Lords look to rely on Sam Lagasse ’16 and Nat Fox ’16, their top two runners from last year, in this season. With a prior conflict keeping Lagasse and Fox from running in Tuesday’s meet, Kyle Rose ’19 was the Lords’ fastest runner, placing fifth in the meet with a time of 17:51. Rose and fellow first year Miles Crawford show the potential to be significant contributors this season and beyond. The Lords and Ladies have their next home meet on Sept. 12, when they are scheduled to run against 11 other schools.
