By Eric Brod

Senior Writer

On Saturday, the men’s and women’s cross country teams opened their 2010 season at a non-scored meet against Bloomsburg, Juniata and Susquehanna on the West Fields.
In the men’s race, 10 of the top 12 finishers were Bison. Chris Sacks ’14 won the three-mile race in 14:56.
“Running this race was pretty nerve-wracking, but it helps when you have upperclassmen to look up to,” Sacks said.

Teammate Evan Novakowski ’11 finished in a close second. The Orange and Blue kept a tight pack throughout the race, capturing places four through eight. D.J. Krystek ’13 placed fourth,

Christopher Boyd ’10 placed fifth, Joshua Clark ’10 placed sixth, Keith Sansone ’12 placed seventh and Charles Murphy ’10 placed eighth.

The Bison women, coming off a Patriot League Championship, were led by Stephanie Fulmer ’12 (17:13) and Sarah Moniz ’11 (17:14) who finished first and second, respectively.

Fulmer feels the performance of the Orange and Blue will help set the tempo for the rest of the season.

“I think that the meet this weekend was a fabulous start to our season. Having our first race at home was a great start for the freshmen who can right away get that team feeling, as well as an awesome thing for our seniors who are going to play such a huge part in preparing for Patriot Leagues,” Fulmer said.

Teammate Alysha Hooper ’12 finished third while Stephanie Bryan ’14 and Kady Weisner ’14 finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Both the men’s and women’s teams will return to action on Sept. 18th in Pittsburgh for a tri-meet against Pitt and Duquesne.
