Milwaukee Runs Well At Falcon Invite
Sept. 15, 2012
Mequon, Wis. - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee cross country teams posted another strong showing at their third meet in as many weeks with a pair of solid performances at the Falcon Invitational hosted by Concordia University.
Milwaukee, again using a shortened roster, did not officially score in the meet but the Panthers did secure a victory on the men's side over Green Bay, the only other Division I team at the meet. On the women's side, UWM fell just shy to Green Bay.
"The team did really well today," Milwaukee head coach Pete Corfeld said. "I was really impressed how athletes stepped up and built on what they did the past two weeks. This is really going to strengthen the core of the team for both the men and the women.
On the men's side, three Panthers finished in the top 11, led by freshman Adam Schueller who took seventh overall in just his second collegiate race with a time of 26:46.1. Louie Glotfelty (26:49.8) and Brett Johnson (26:54.9) were right alongside Schueller and finished ninth and 11th, respectively.
Katy Koch (25:49.0) was 46th, Emily Schaal (25:58.8) 50th and Adriana Gutierrez (26:01.9) 51st to also score for the Black and Gold.
"It was really great to see Carissa do well," Corfeld said. "She has been battling injuries so I wasn't sure where she would start, but she did very well in her first action.
"The kids made some really good progress and I'm looking forward to a couple good weeks of training and then getting back at it at a really high level at Louisville."
Milwaukee has a week off before returning to action Sept. 29 at the big Louisville Classic in Louisville, Ky.
