Loras 3rd/7

 

The Loras College men's cross country team opened their 2013 season with a trip to Pella, Iowa – site of the 2013 IIAC Championships – on Saturday morning. The Duhawks took third place, scoring 50 points in the 97-runner field. 

 

Leading the Duhawks to the finish line were Steve Loran and Sam Whan. The duo finished just four seconds apart in sixth and seventh place in 27:04 and 27:08.

 

Each of the point-scoring Duhawks were in the top 15. JP Sevcik was third for Loras in 27:50 (10th). Rob Howe was fourth in 28:26 (12th) and Ty Wittman was 15th in 28:48 (15th). Ryan Sheeran and Kyle Wagner rounded out the top seven for Loras.

 

The Duhawks will return to their training regimen over the next two weeks as they prepare for their annual trip to the University of Notre Dame's National Catholic Championships on September 20.
