WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's cross country team split sites this weekend, sending a contingent to Madison, Wis., for the Wisconsin adidas Invitational while a group of runners stayed closer to home traveling to Charlottesville, Va., for the Panorama Farms Invitational. The men finished 24th of 39 teams with 609 points in the Badger State while GU placed sixth of 10 teams with 147 points at UVA.

At the adidas Invitational, Mark Dennin (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyerstown) led the way for the Hoyas as he finished 41st overall, timing in at 24:25. Graduate transfer Alex Lundy (Littleton, Colo./Heritage/Maryland) was the second for the Blue & Gray to cross the finish (24:32) in 53rd place overall. T.C. Lumbar (Edina, Minn./Edina), Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly) and Ben Furcht (Ardmore, Pa./Lower Merion) were the final trio to record points for the Hoyas, all timing in during the 26th minute of the race with times of 25:10, 25:21 and 25:27, respectively.
