Young leads Jimmie XC teams

University of Jamestown's Matt Young placed third in the men's 5K to lead the Jimmie cross country teams Friday at the Concordia Triangular in Moorhead, Minn.

Young covered the course 16 minutes, 18.5 seconds. The Jimmies' Aaron Ford (16:57.8) placed fifth, helping Jamestown capture fourth of five teams. The race consisted of 46 total runners.

"Matt and Aaron raced hard in a field that was top heavy," said UJ cross country coach Jim Clark. "Dustin Wagner (16th) ran a good race. We faded after a good early pach through the rest of our guys."

Senior Allison Foster placed sixth in the 5K women's race for the Jimmies, posting a time of 21:06.4. Freshman Helen Rose Murphy, who placed 10th of 36 runners (21:47.2), was the only other Jimmie competing on the women's side.

"Though neither impressed with their time, Allie and Helen competed hard and a top 10 place out of 36 is not bad," Clark said. "Good meet to put behind us and prepare for the long haul. We have a lot of improving to do."
