Despite running in less than ideal racing conditions, the Alpena Community College cross country team put together another solid performance Friday at the Michigan State Spartan Invitational.

“Overall it was a good day. My guys are where they need to be after our first two meets” ACC coach Mark Jacobs said. “We need to continue to lower our times and get our number one through number five guys closer together. That’s the secret to being successful in cross country.”

Tylor Ross (Fairview) continued to lead the Lumberjacks with a time of 29:20. Ross was followed by Caleb Burger (Alpena) 29:58, Aidan Francis (Memphis) 32:00, Mason Kaniszewski (Tawas) 32:13, Tyler Cherry (Gaylord) 33:32, Nate Robey (Big Rapids) 36:02, Musa Kabbah (voinjama, Liberia) 36:58, Duncan Ross (Rogers City) 37:21.

Former Alpena High runners Josh Smith (UNA-Michigan State) 25:41 and Kolin Ghidoni (Ferris State) 29:39 also competed in the race.

The Lumberjacks next travel to Grand Rapids Community College Invitational on Friday.
