Loyola Turns In Positive Opener at Seagull Invitational
Sept. 2, 2003
SALISBURY, MD - Loyola's women's cross country team placed seven racers in the top-20 en route to a second place team finish while the Greyhound men took sixth place at Saturday's Seagull Invitational, both teams' season-opening meet.
Adrienne Blauvelt took second place overall as she finished the 6K course in a time of 22:54.40 as teammates Grace Wetzel (6th place), Andrea Rovegno (8th), Jackie Truncellito (11th), Colleen Depman (12th), Gretchen Schuller (17th), and Jackie Gaines (20th) were the other Greyhounds to finish in the top-20.
Loyola lost the team championship by just five points to Division II power Wayne State as the 'Hounds took second of 10 teams and finished 47 points ahead of the next-closest finisher, third place Christopher Newport.
James daSilva led the way for the Greyhound men with his 8K time of 26:48.03, one of the top-20 times in school history, as he nabbed 10th place. Loyola's Jon White took 43rd and Perry Salonia grabbed 47th.
Loyola had a tough time putting points together as a team and finished in sixth place out of eight teams, despite a good effort early in the season amidst bad running conditions, according to head coach Chris Bayless.
"I'm very pleased with the start for both of our teams," said Bayless. "On the women's side, we showed we had people who could pick it up for us when other people weren't having their best day, while on the men's side, they put forth a good effort and still ran some decent times in bad weather against strong competition."
Loyola returns to action Saturday, September 6th at 10:00 a.m. when it runs in the McDaniel Invitational.
