Muskegon, MI – In cold and wet conditions, the Grace Christian University cross country team competed in the Jayhawk Invite this past weekend at the University Park Golf Course on the campus of Muskegon Community College.
The Tigers continued to focus on racing strategies for Nationals next month with a focus on passing and competitiveness. "Considering the conditions, the guys ran well," commented Grace assistant coach Bill Bird. "The girls ran the best they could considering a couple of them have bad colds right now."
