Seven of eight KCC cross-country runners run PRs at Knight-Raider Invitational in Grand Rapids

The women's cross-country team huddles before a race.

Kellogg Community College’s men’s and women’s cross-country teams put forth a solid effort at the Knight-Raider Invitational held at Calvin University Saturday, with seven of the eight Bruin runners finishing with season or all-time personal records.

Head KCC Cross-Country Coach Erin Lane said everyone ran great overall.

“It was our men’s first 8K of the season and first ever 8K for a couple of our men,” Lane said. “All the women ran a solid race, either running a season PR or lifetime PR. We look forward to next week when we will run both a full men’s and full women’s team.”

Individual results follow.
