NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Marquette University men's and women's cross country teams concluded competition Friday at the National Catholic Invitational with second and third place finishes, respectfully. The men were led by sophomore Jack Senefeld's seventh-place finish in 24:59, while the women were paced by senior Olivia Johnson, who finished seventh in 18:02.
"I thought that both groups performed well and today was a step in the right direction," said head coach Mike Nelson. "The women performed much better than they did at Wisconsin and they took a big step forward."
Behind Senefeld on the men's side, Blake Johnson, Brice Cleland and Peter Bolgert each finished in the top-20 overall and sophomore Connor Callahan improved on his seventh-place team finish at the Badger Classic to move into MU's top five.
"Jack Senefeld had an awesome day and it was really fun to watch him compete. He got out with the top dogs and didn't relinquish his spot. Blake and Brice also had really good days for us and Connor Callahan ran much better," Nelson said.
On the women's side, senior Laurie Dalrymple placed 20th in 18:32, while Carly Windt, Bekki Misanin and Kate Horan rounded out MU's top-five finishers, all in the top 30 overall.
"Olivia led the group well today and Laurie Dalrymple really ran a great race. I saw tremendous improvements today."
The Golden Eagles return to action Friday, Oct. 1 at the Carthage College Invite and Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Wisconsin Invitational.
