Hawkeye men's cross-country takes 10th place at Big Ten Championships


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s cross-country team nabbed a 10th-place finish at the Big Ten meet on Sunday.

Unlike the women, who also finished in 10th, the men’s squad didn’t have a top-10 finisher.

Senior Nick Holmes scored the top Hawkeye spot in the 8,000-meter race, crossing the finish line in 24:33.8 for 31st place.

Another 20 harriers finished before Hawkeye sophomore Ben Witt, who placed 51st (24:54.9). But a large pack of close-together Iowa runners followed: John Michael Brandt placed 61st (25:06), followed by Caleb Wilfong in 68th (25:16). Anthony Gregorio (25:27) and Taylor Soltys (25:29) took 73rd and 75th, respectively.

Cameron Reiger took 87th with a time of 25:50, and Sam Chaney rounded out the Hawkeyes with a 90th-place finish (26:00).

Wisconsin took the team title after boasting the second, third, sixth, and seventh harriers.

Wisconsin’s team score was 33, while the Hawkeyes tallied a 267.

The Hawkeyes beat out one team, Nebraska, which finished with 333 points.
