BUFFALO, NY – The Bulls return to action this Friday for the annual UB Stampede Invitational after a strong showing at the Toledo Rockets Invite which saw the UB men finish in second place overall and the UB women claim fourth.
Leading the way for the Bulls men's team in the opening meet was junior Caleb Covell, who collected an individual victory in the men's 6k race clocking in at 18:33.00 on his way to MAC runner of the week honors. Sophomore Thomas Flannery had a strong showing for UB as well, placing ninth in 19:01.80 while Benjamin Cardamone took 10th place with a time of 19:04.90.
On the women's side, freshman Riley Jones was able to finish in sixth place overall in her first-career race, crossing the line in 14:25.90 while senior Lauren Reyda ran a strong race and took home 12th place in 14:41.10.
The Bulls will look to continue the momentum tomorrow as they are set to face California (PA), McMaster, Duquesne, Colgate, Canisius, Waterloo, Cornell, Vermont (women only) and Connecticut (women only). Last year's UB Stampede saw both Buffalo teams place well, as the women came away with a second place finish while the UB men were able to claim third overall, led by senior Dan Muldoon who crossed the line in eighth at 25:18.7.
Things get underway with the men's 8k event at 11:00am followed by the women's 6k event at 11:30am. The meet will be held at Audubon Golf Course in Amherst, NY.
