SALISBURY, Md. - Freshman Richard Camacho (Medford, Ore.) made a great stride on Saturday for the Gallaudet University men's cross country team. The Bison only had two runners compete in the Don Cathcart Invitational, hosted by Salisbury University, at Winter Place Park.
Camacho shaved three minutes off his time he ran at the same 8,000-meter course three weeks ago. He finished 105th overall with a time of 39:38 which was better then the 42:30 he first posted at the Sea Gull Opener.
The first Bison to cross the finish line was freshman Max Wilding (Colorado Springs, Colo.), who finished 97th overall, with a time of 34:08 which was two minutes better then the 36:07 he ran back on September 5.
East Stroudsburg University won the invitational with 21 team points followed by Wilmington (Del.) University (66 points) and the host Sea Gulls from Salisbury (69 points) round out the top three among the 13 teams that competed. A team needs five runners to earn team points. ESU runner Frank Fezza won the race with a time of 25:34.
Gallaudet is slated to be off next week but will return to action on Saturday, October 10, in Towson, Md., at the Goucher Classic.
