Pittsburgh, PA – The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference held their men’s cross country championships October 30 at Schenley Park with all ten member institutions participating. Franciscan University bumped-off three-time defending champion Penn State Behrend in winning their first ever AMCC crown. Franciscan senor Bill Jones won the men’s 8K race, for the second time in three years, helping the Barons secure the team title. Jones (27:11.9) out sprinted Penn State Behrend’s Carl Kallgren by three seconds and then set up the run-way for his teammates to fly in as #3, #4, and #5 finishers good for  26 team points.  Behrend captured 6th through 11th place making this a very close race.

Hilbert’s senior Aaron Lawrence (Fish Kill, NY/John Jay) ran his second best time of the year finishing 34th in 34:27.8. Hilbert’s 9th place finish (227 points) was supported by Jimmy Campbell (36:00.2), Cameron Haag (38:06.5), Jeff Gauthier (38:33.4), Paul Coleman (47:23.6) and Stephen Crane (48:04.4)
