CUW men are NAC Champions in cross country

Kenosha, Wis.- Falcon balance was the key as the CUW men edged out both Edgewood College and Benedictine to win the 2011 NAC Cross Country Championship this morning.

Sophomore Martin Hinze's (Bourbonnais, Wis.) 4th place finish led the way for Russ DeLap's harriers, but the pack of 11th-13th place finishers consisting of freshman Andrew Coop (Mora, Minn.) , sophomore Jordan Guenther (Horicon, Wis.) , and senior Ryan Perry (Naperville, Ill.) was the key to victory.

Junior Kevin Gries (Cleveland, Wis.) came in 23rd to secure the narrow 5 man win for Concordia. Edgewood actually had 3 of the top 7 individual finishers, but the Eagles 5th runner could do no better than 42nd place.
