Both the men’s and women’s cross country teams finished in 2nd place at the Great Alaska Stampede in Anchorage on Saturday.
Micah Chelimo, University of Alaska at Anchorage student, captured the men’s individual title with a time of 15:18.60, followed by ACU’s Cleophas Tanui in 2nd place with a time of 15:44.90. UAA runners finished in 3rd and 4th place, ACU freshman Spencer Lynn finished 5th and sophomore Jacob Schofield finished in 7th place. The top ACU women’s finisher was Chloe Susset, who finished in 5th place.
Head Coach Sam Burroughs felt the trip was an excellent opportunity for his team.
“We raced on a world-circuit cross-country skiing course,” Burroughs said. “UAA is good competition as well. Their men’s team is ranked No. 15 and their women’s No. 9.”
