EARLYSVILLE, Va.—The No. 11 UVA men’s cross country team finished third at the Virginia/Panorama Farms Invitational Friday morning (Sept. 23) at Panorama Farms in Earlysville.

The Cavaliers finished third in the 8,000-meter race with a total of 82 points, behind No. 12 BYU (39) and No. 1 Syracuse (44). Campbell was fourth with 125 points, while No. 4 Stanford was fifth with 139.

“Our team ran well on a hot and challenging day to run,” UVA men’s cross country coach Pete Watson said. “The boys did a very good job of maintaining composure and running strong for the most part. It was a good result and we ran well. BYU and Syracuse are just better teams then us right now, but we have two months to close the gap.”

Redshirt sophomore Brent Demarest (Charleston, S.C.) crossed the line first for the Cavaliers, finishing 11th overall in 24:12.3. Seniors Zach Herriott (Kansas City, Mo.) and Mike Marsella (Hope Valley, R.I.) placed 14th and 15th, respectively, while junior Chase Weaverling (Darnestown, Md.) and freshman Lachlan Cook (Brisbane, Australia) finished 20th and 22nd, respectively, to round out the scoring five.


 

 

Next up, the Cavaliers head to the Penn State National Open on Oct. 14 in State College, Pa.
