Hornets Compete at 40th Annual Paul Short Invitational

LEHIGH, PA – The Lynchburg College men's cross country team competed Saturday at the 40th annual Paul Short Invitational meet in Lehigh, Pennsylvania. The Hornets ran amongst 45 other Division I, II, and III teams in the 8K race that harbored 372 individual runners.

The top finisher for the Hornets was junior Anthony McBride who finished the race with a time of 26:46. Sophomores Andrew Osborne and Tyler Timblin were the next Hornets to cross the finish line with times of 27:23 and 27:31, respectively. Freshman Drew Smith was the next LC runner to cross the line with a time of 29:21. Senior Evan Parry finished right behind Smith with a time of 29:22.

The invitational was cut short due to the heat. Because of this, the Lynchburg women's cross Country team did not compete.

The Hornets next outing is Friday, October 18th when they will travel to Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina to compete at the Blue Ridge Open.
