SJU Invitational Meet Recap

Cobbers Have Promising Season Start at SJU Invitational!!
(COLLEGEVILLE)-- The 2004 Cobber men's cross country team had two provens and a whole lot of unknowns coming into the season. In the opening meet at St. John's, the provens continued to challenge for the top spots in the meet and the unknowns quickly became known. 

Seniors Nick Myran (Kenyon, Minn./Kenyon-Wanamingo HS) and Ben Nylander (Lisbon, N.D./Lisbon HS) both finished in the top fifteen of the meet and both ran the opening race injury-free. The Cobbers then received solid performances from their newcomers to help the team finish third in the team standings. Concordia finished the meet with 116 points. St. John's won the invitational with a low score of 19 points.

Myran started his senior season by finishing sixth and has now set the stage for a storied last year in maroon and gold. Last year he earned all-region and all-conference honors in cross country and narrowly missed earning All-American honors at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Meet. His final time over the 8,000 meter course was 27:11, less than 50 seconds behind the overall winner. 

Nylander finished 16th in a time of 28:02. He will be benefited this season by a year of training. Last year he was hampered by an injury all season long.

The next wave of Cobber runners featured sophomore Dan Bye (Mankato, Minn./Mankato Loyola HS) and freshmen Scott Dinsen (Hastings, Minn./Hastings) and Matt Putratz (Mazeppa, Minn./Zumbrota-Mazeppa). Bye, solidly locked in as the team's number three runner, ran 30:21, while Dinsen finished in 31:06 and Putratz completed the course in 31:25.

The Cobbers will travel to Rapid City, S.D. to participate in the South Dakota Tech Invite on Saturday, September 11 at 11:00am at Robbinsdale Park.
