Both the men's and women's Canisius College cross country teams will compete in the 37th annual Brooks/Paul Short Run in Bethlehem, Pa at 12:00 p.m. Friday.
The Golden Griffins are coming off a sweep of the Little Three Championships last weekend that saw both the men and women place first for the fifth consecutive time. Freshman Mikelle Cala and sophomore Alex Simon took first place in the event for the Griffs as the team continued its march towards the 2010 MAAC Championships.
The last time Canisius took part in the Brooks Paul Short Run was in 2008 when the men took 45th place and the women 38th. Junior Jill Shea led the women finishing the course with a time of 22:59, while junior Matt Kearney crossed the finish line with a time of 27:18.
The men's 8k race will begin at 12:15 while the women will begin their 6k at approximately 1 p.m.
