Cross Country Schedule Announced For Fall 2022
The men and women’s cross-country runners are looking forward to picking up where things left off last fall.
Things will start up with a return meet to McPherson College to compete in the Carol Swenson Invitational. Manhattan Christian will race on this course twice this season and will see tough competitors. MCC will also travel Crowder College and finish up at the Last Chance Meet hosted by Ozark Christian College.
“The Thunder will race against some of the top NAIA Cross Country runners this fall, which I think will push our runners and just make them that much better when it comes to our last meet in Joplin before the National Meet,” stated head coach Mindy Eckert.
In the first year of being reinstated, it saw each runner improving on their times each race. Kate McGee returns this season, she was just a couple minute shy of making the NCCAA DII National Meet last year and will be looking towards that goal this year.
Ian Uphoff, in one of the tougher courses, made it to Nationals with a time of 32:03.40. Due to other commitments Uphoff was unable to attend.
