Freshman Daniel Moses led the Warrior men at the team's opening race in 2017.
LEWISBURG, Pa. – With a very balanced effort in a small five-team invitational, the Lycoming College cross country teams opened the 2017 season on Friday evening, Sept. 1 at the Bison Open on the campus of Bucknell University.

The Warriors finished fifth on both the men’s and women’s sides in a meet that featured two Division I squads and perennial Landmark Conference powerhouses Susquehanna and Juniata.

Sophomore Kaylee Long (Milton, Pa./Milton Area) led the women’s team by finishing 39th in a field of 67 runners with a time of 16:36 in the 4K race. Senior Rachel Fritz (Honesdale, Pa./Honesdale) followed with a  time of 17:19 to take 45th and sophomore Amanda Goulden (Wharton, N.J./Morris Hills) took third on the team in 17:40. Seniors Lindsay Smith (Easton, Pa./Easton Area) (20:14) and Rachel Ham (San Antonio, Texas/Home-schooled) (20:34) rounded out the team’s scoring five runners.

On the men’s side, the team’s top five runners were separated by just 2:27 on the 6K course. Freshman Daniel Moses (Cape May, N.J./Wildwood Catholic) led the team with a time of 22:18 to take 42nd in the field of 57 runners. Freshman Maverick Stenger (Mifflinburg, Pa./Mifflinburg Area) added a time of 23:33 to take second on the team and sophomore Gustavo Vergara (Santa Ana, Calif./Valley) finished in 23:34. Senior Sean Hastings (Levittown, Pa./Neshaminy) (24:17) and senior Joseph Ingrum (Lodi, Calif./Lodi) (24:44) rounded out the team’s scoring five runners.

The Warriors get back in action on Saturday, Sept. 9, when they head to the Dutchmen XC Invitational at Union Canal Tunnel Park in Lebanon, Pa. The women’s race is set for 10:15 a.m. and the men’s is set to start at 11 a.m.
