Both the men’s and women’s cross-country teams placed third in the UW-Parkside Vic Godfrey Open over the weekend while junior Cody Chadwick took the individual crown in the men’s race.

The Titan men took third with 73 points, trailing the University of Chicago who tallied 25 points and UW-Parkside who had 68 points.

Chadwick’s time of 25:47.8 was four seconds faster than the second-place finisher, Brock Eves of UW-Parkside.

Other placers for the men were: junior Andrew Rathkamp in 18th place, sophomore Andrew Muskevitsch in 22nd, junior Noah O’Neill in 29th and freshman Joe Kehoe in 30th place.

Junior Spencer Muffler said the team is looking forward to their home event, which will take place Sept. 20 at The Lake Breeze Golf Course in Winneconne.

“The Titan Fall Classic is a meet that will help the team gain more experience and see where we’re at so we can keep our season goals open to achieve,” Muffler said. “The team will be consistent with training and focusing on staying healthy for the Titan Fall Classic.”

The women’s team battled Division I Butler University (Ind.), the University of Chicago and nine other teams to a third-place finish with 104 points.

UWO senior Ashton Keene ran to a 15th-place finish with a time of 19:06 while junior Hannah Lohrenz placed 22nd with a time of 19:28.

UWO runners acquiring team points were sophomore Elizabeth Reddeman in 25th place, senior Amanda Van Den Plas in 28th and freshman Alexandria Demco in 31st.
