STANDISH, Maine – The Lyndon men notched a second-place finish at the Saint Joseph's College Runnin' Monks Invitational. The Hornets, who earned 44 points in the event, placed second behind an impressive performance by Johnson and Wales University, who ammassed 15 points.
Wildens Fils (Stamford, Conn.) led the Hornets with a sixth-place overall finish in a time of 28:46. Fils was closely followed by Dylan MacNevin (Northwood, N.H.) in seventh place (28:56) and team captain Craig Johnson (North Kingstwon, R.I.) came in eighth in 29:21 over the eight-kilometer course. Kenedi Hall (11th - 30:03) and Michael Farmer (12th- 30:27) completed the Hornet's top-five finishers.
"The men preformed well despite being without Josh (Grant), who was on an academic field trip," said Lyndon head coach Chris Ummer. "Craig (Johnson) is starting to come around and Michael Farmer is getting stronger. With the improvements of these two, we're on target for our third NAC title."
