Nine of 11 runners PR at Jayhawk Invitational in Muskegon

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

Nine out of 11 Kellogg Community College’s men’s and women’s cross-country runners ran personal records Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Jayhawk Invitational in Muskegon.

The invite was the first race since Oct. 1, and Head KCC Cross-Country Coach Erin Lane said that she could not have asked for better results.

“With the exception of a couple who were not 100%, everyone ran a great race running either a season best or a lifetime best,” Lane said. “We will train hard this week and taper off for our conference and regional meet on Oct. 30.”
