The Hillsdale College men's cross country team defended its home course against Lake Superior State University and Northwood University, winning the Hillsdale Invitational by a five-point margin. The team had to stay mentally strong after a 30-minute weather delay, as they stood soaking wet on the start line, facing the long, daunting hill ahead.
Junior Joey Humes led the race from the start, and finished first overall in 26:36.8.
Sophomore Jack Shelley broke up a pack of Lake Superior State runners, coming in 7th place with a time of 29:04.5.
Junior Charles Holbrook finished in 16th overall, rounding out the Chargers, with a time of 31:12.2.
