Glotfelty Leads UWM At Regionals
Nov. 12, 2011
Toledo, Ohio - Junior Bobby Glotfelty took 139th place to lead the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's cross country team at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Championship hosted by Toledo Saturday afternoon.
Milwaukee finished 26th overall with 817 points, in front of conference foes Detroit (832), Youngstown State (832), Valparaiso (893) and Green Bay (960). Wisconsin won the meet with 50 points.
"We were probably expecting a little bit more out of our team finish but we had some very good races individually," UWM head coach Pete Corfeld said. "Bobby (Glotfelty) ran very well and Alex Francis did well in the first time he's run at regional's. I thought they put in a good effort, especially moving up the distance we normally run."
Glotfelty led Milwaukee in the 10,000-meter run by crossing the line at 33:11.6. He paced the Panthers for second time this season, also leading the way at the Notre Dame Invite. The remainder of the team's scorers finished just 45 seconds apart. Junior Jake Reilly was the team's second runner, finishing in 33:47.6 for 160th place.
Freshman Louis Glotfelty was the next Panther finisher in 163rd place, while the scorers were rounded out with senior Thomas Wells in 176th and senior Ryan Baumgartner in 179th. Glotfelty ran a time of 33:53.0, Wells finished 34:25.7 and Baumgartner in 34:31.6.
Francis finished just outside of the scorers with a time of 34:34.4, good enough for 181st place. Sam Leschisin also ran for Milwaukee, crossing the line at 36:52.1.
The regional meet was the final meet of the season for the Panthers.
