Reilly, Team Take Fourth At League Championships
Oct. 29, 2011
Cleveland, Ohio - Junior Jake Reilly finished fourth overall and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's cross country team finished fourth at the Horizon League Championships at Squire Valleevue Farms in Cleveland, Ohio Saturday morning.
The Panthers finished with 127 points on the day, edging out Wright State (135) and Detroit (145) while falling just behind UIC.
Butler won the race with 25 points.
"The guys had a great effort today and it showed," UWM head coach Pete Corfeld said. "It was a really competitive meet on an unbelievably sloppy course. I don't know that I've been on that sloppy of a course ever, but the guys dealt with it and I'm proud of how they finished."
Reilly led the way for Milwaukee, taking fourth overall with a time of 26:18.2. For his efforts, the junior was named to the All-Horizon League First Team, the first time a UWM men's runner has been named to the first team since 2005.
Junior Bobby Glotfelty came in second for the Panthers and finished just shy of All-Horizon League Second-Team honors. Glotfelty crossed the line at 27:11.2, good enough for 16th place overall.
Senior Ryan Baumgartner had a strong showing in his final league championships and took third for UWM and 31st overall at 28:13.1.
Milwaukee returns to action in two weeks at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Meet Nov. 12 in Toledo, Ohio.
