Cross-country teams compete at Northwood University Invitational in Midland

KCC's 2021 men's and women's cross-country teams.

Kellogg Community College’s men’s and women’s cross-country teams continued their seasons Saturday at the Northwood University Invitational in Midland.

It was just the second competition of the season for the Bruins, and Head KCC Cross-Country Coach Erin Lane said “everyone ran smarter and faster this meet.”

“The women all ran great today and improved greatly from their last meet,” Lane said. “The men jumped up to a 6K this meet and handled the increase in distance well. Next week the men will increase their racing distance to 8K, where they will stay the rest of the season. We ran against some larger schools today, but did very well against the other junior colleges in attendance.”
