2019 Cross Country Team

October 28, 2019 – – LCCC’s Men’s Cross-Country Team brought home the Division III Region XII Championship trophy this past Saturday, defeating Columbus State CC for the title. All-Region selections Charlie Yonts (Oberlin/Firelands) and Henry Haas (Wellington) finished second and third, respectively for the NJCAA’s eighth-ranked Commodores.

Kelsey Gannon (Avon) once again led the sixth-ranked LCCC Women’s team finishing second in the meet to earn an All-Region team nod. Sisters, Samantha Glass and Mackenzie Glass (Sheffield Lake/Brookside) finished third and fourth earning places on the All-Region squad, as well. Injuries sidelined two other Commodore runners so they were unable to compete for the Region Championship Team title.

Eight of the nine Commodores running turned in season-best times at Regionals, held at Grand Woods Park in Lansing Michigan. LCCC Head Coach Jim Powers and his teams head to Holyoke, Massachusetts to compete in the NJCAA Division III National Championship meet this Saturday, November 2, 2019.
