Cross Country Finishes Fourth, McElhennon '20 Wins

In the second competition of the year, Gonzaga Cross Country traveled to Big Spring, PA Saturday, September 15 for the Ben Bloser Invitational. Cloudy skies cleared as the competition began, making for a great day of running.  Gavin McElhennon ‘20 won the varsity race in 16:20 while Cullen Capuano ‘20 finished in 3rd about 20 seconds later! Rounding out the top five for the team were Luke Francese ‘20, Pat Donnelly ‘21, and making his varsity debut, Seamus O’Connor ‘22. The team finished 4th overall in a tight race.  Here is video of Gavin and Cullen finishing the race:
