PITTSBURGH -- Dylan Grunn posted his best time of the season at 27 minutes, 56 seconds to lead the Point Park University men's cross country team at the Carnegie Mellon University meet on Saturday at Schenley Park. Point Park finished in 13th place as a team.
Grunn, a junior from Honesdale, placed 56th in a very challenging field of 133 runners. The field was made of some NCAA Division I and II teams as well as a talented NCAA DIII CMU squad.
Conor Mulvaney, a freshman from Coraopolis, Pa., had a time of 29:40 and was the second Pioneers runner to finish the 8K. Junior Chris Kennedy, from Columbiaville, Mich., was next at 31:40.
Following close behind were Reuben Rono (31:45) and Ian McIntosh (31:49). Other Point Park runners were Jon Rohlf (32:36), Luke Shannon (33:02), Adam Freeman (34:24) and Joe DeWitt (35:00).
Point Park is off next week and will compete again Oct. 22 at the Walsh University meet in Canton, Ohio. That will be the last regular season race for the Pioneers, who will travel to St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 5 for the Unaffiliated Conference Meet (American Mideast Conf./American Midwest Conf.). The team champion and any qualifying individuals from that competition will advance to the NAIA national meet Nov. 19 in Vancouver, Wash.
