EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Saint Louis cross country teams competed at the John Flamer Invitational at SIUE on Saturday. The event took place at the SIUE Cross Country course in Edwardsville, Ill.
Nina Razavi led the way for the women’s team with a 6K time of 23:07.60. Hiob Gebisso was the Billiken’s top runner on the men’s side, finishing the 8K in 25:43.46.
"Today's meet was a great opportunity for our younger student athletes to gain some experience,” SLU head coach Jon Bell said. “Our freshmen women got their first chance to race 6K. For the men, we were able to run a different lineup to get them experience in our scoring five. As a staff we are pleased with the progress this group of student athletes has made thus far. From day one of the season we have prioritized the conference championships. We knew going into this weekend we would be running a different lineup, but we made sure our program got better, and the athletes who raced today did exactly that."
The meet was scored as a dual between SLU and SIUE as the two NCAA Division I programs competing in the event. SIUE came out ahead by one point on the men’s side and edged the Billikens in the women’s race.
