The CCRI men’s cross country team traveled to Newport, RI to compete in a dual cross country meet with the Naval Academy Preparatory School.  The Knights’ team lost by a single point to the Rams of Navy Prep 27 to 28 (lowest score is best). 

The Knights’ top runner Bobby Allen (Cranston, RI) won the race in a time of 16 minutes 10 seconds with teammate Ben Marino (Warwick, RI) finishing in third place across the 5k course in a time of 18:17. However as a team Navy Prep was able to edge the Knights 27-28 by one point. Also finishing well for the Knights was Cole Maguire (Foster, RI) finishing 6th in a time of 19:33 he was followed by Isaiah Hector (Warwick, RI) finishing 8th in 19:55 and Chris Mann (West Warwick, RI)  rounded out the Knights’ runners finishing 10th in 20:18.  Naps had their top five runners finish second, fourth, fifth, seventh and ninth winning by a single point over the Knights.

Head Coach Gregg Cornell commented dafter the meet “Our men ran strong but came up just a little short of victory against a very evenly matched Navy squad.”
