Race Results

Matt Alander scored for the Jumbos at Keene State
 

KEENE, N.H. -- Senior tri-captain Chris Kantos (Apple Valley, MN) ran in a cross country race for the first time in well over a year, and he ran very well to help the Jumbos place third at the 10-team Keene State College Invitational on Saturday.

Kantos covered the five-mile course in 26 minutes, 49 seconds for fourth place overall. He was 24 seconds off the pace set by race champion Mark Garcia from UMass Lowell, who posted a 26:25 finish.

With most of the team's top seven taking the week off, Kantos wasn't alone in producing a promising effort for the Jumbos. Freshman Chris Brunnquell (Harrington Park, NJ) delivered 26th place finish in the 100-man race with a time of 28:35. He led a pack of four Jumbos runners that all scored in the top 26 spots. Freshman Andrew Bellet (Wynnewood, PA) finished 31st in 28:43, senior Matt Alander (Hamden, CT) was 35th in 28:55, and senior tri-captain Alex Bloom (Lansdale, PA) took 37th in 29:05.

Host Keene State won the race with a score of 23 points. Division II UMass Lowell was second at 53, followed by Coach Ethan Barron's Jumbos with 96 points.

Tufts races at the New England Open Championships at Franklin Park next Saturday.
