Cross country hosts America East Championship, men finish second
Senior Vasili Papastrat was fifth in the men’s race and junior Collin Frost was ninth, leading Binghamton to a runner-up finish at the America East Cross Country Championships on Nov. 2. The Bearcat women’s team placed ninth overall. The meet was run on Binghamton’s home course for the first time since 2005.
Binghamton recorded its highest finish at the America East meet since also placing second in 2010. With 65 points, the Bearcats placed a close second to UMBC (58) in the team standings and nearly won the title for the first time since 2009. Stony Brook (70) and New Hampshire (72) were the next two teams in the standings.
“I was very pleased with how the men ran today,” head coach Annette Acuff said. “Vasili and Collin ran very well and we had five guys in the top 21.”
