Sophomore B.J. Smith ran a 5K time of 15:09.05 to finish fourth -- tops among Division II student-athletes -- and lead the Franklin Pierce University Men's Cross Country team at Stanley Park in the CCSU Mini Meet.
As a team, Dage Minors and his Franklin Pierce teammates finished with 115 points, which was good for fourth in the 19-team meet.
Smith was one of three Franklin Pierce runners to finish among the top 10 in the 127-runner field, which was laden with Division I talent from across New England. Senior Antoine Gisore and junior Colton Ham finished one behind the other in seventh clocking 15:11.48 and eighth with a time of 15:12.13, respectively.
After Ham, it was a considerable gap to the next Franklin Pierce student-athlete, as sophomore Minors and freshman Luke Thresher rounded out the Franklin Pierce five scoring positions. Minors ran a 15:42.76 to finish 40th, while Thresher recorded a time of 15:51.31 to place 56th.
Also competing for Franklin Pierce were junior Makopa Rugabirwa in 65th (15:57.08) and sophomore Jon Holmes in 81st (16:14.85).
In the team scoring, Central Connecticut State (52 points) finished first on its home course and posted a 16-point win over Providence (68), which finished second. Yale (74) finished directly in front of Franklin Pierce, while fellow Northeast-10 Conference member American International (143) rounded out the top five.
Individually, CCSU's Patrick Hubbell clocked in at 14:51.28 to take first and post a six-second victory over Trevor Cawley of Providence, who finished second (14:57.46). Another Friar took third, in the form of Stephen Robertson (15:06.32). Next was Smith, who had CCSU's Matt Walker (15:09.13) hot on his heels to finish off the top five.
