Kellogg Community College’s men’s and women’s cross country teams opened the season Friday with just three runners between them at the Olivet College Comet Open at Broadway Acres Golf Course in Charlotte.
Below are individual results from each race. The Comet Open was a 5K event, which is a shorter race than usual for college-level cross-country races, and colleges weren’t formally scored by team.
