MANCHESTER, Conn--The Connecticut College men's cross country team visited Wickham Park to open the season with the Trinity College Invitational. It was a successful start for the Camels who finished second behind the Division I Saints of Siena with a score of 72 points.
The Camels were running without All-American Michael LeDuc (Canton, Conn.) and the rest of their top seven so this race was a true testament to the depth of the squad.
Freshman Raymond Rich-Fiondella (North Haven, Conn.) posted a time of 17:02 en route to his sixth place finish on the 5k course. First year harrier Zander Mintz (East Windsor, N.J.) was the second Camel scorer in 12th place with a time of 17:28. Junior Billy Barnes (New York, N.Y.) posted a time of 17:42 en route to his 14th place scoring for the Camels.
Senior Aaron Davis of New London and freshman Alejandro Hernandez finished in 22nd and 23rd place with respective times of 18:00 and 18:02. Sophomore Dan Burns (Alexandria, Va.) was the sixth Camel scorer in 27th place with a time of 18:07.
Dan Gossels (Sudbury, Mass.) posted a time of 18:22 to finish in 34th place as the seventh Camel scorer.
