CEDARVILLE, Ohio -- Heidelberg University sophomore Austin Neura took third in Division III at the All-Ohio Championships hosted by Cedarville on Friday. Neura's finish helped lift the Berg men's cross country team to a sixth place finish among the 17 Division III programs in the race.
Neura clocked a 25:34, averaging 5:08/mile. Isaac Kuntz was the second Heidelberg finisher with a time of 26:40. Kuntz was 26th.
Dominic Frey was third across the line for Heidelberg with a time of 26:50 (36th). Next, Jacob Ferrebee was 49th with a time of 27:18. The fifth scorer for Heidelberg was freshman Kyle Manuel, whose 27:44 was 55th.
"It was a disappointing day on the men's side," said head coach Brian Grime. "Our varsity men did not rise up to the competition and that is something tha twe are going to have to work on if we want to continue to get better."
The men's team will look to rebound at the UW-Ohkosh Invitational on October 14th.
