WARWICK, R.I. - Senior David Cotton (Madison, Conn.) took home a seventh-place finish to pace the University of Connecticut men's cross country team to a second-place overall finish at the 2014 Rothenburg Run at Goddard State Park.
Cotton (25:21.7) ran the 8K race in an average mile time of 5:06.1. He was followed up by Alvaro Chavez, who crossed the line in 25:40.3 and took 10th place. Also earning top-20 results was captain Ned Wilson (25:41.2), Wyatt Million (25:43.6), Michael McGonnigle (25:52.8) and Patrick Begley (35:55.3).
Overall, the Huskies averaged a 25:39 finish time, just behind Vermont's 25:26. The Huskies (56) topped Brown (56), Dartmouth (92), URI (115) and Bryant (139).
"We're a better team today than we were yesterday," said head coach Greg Roy. "The guys made some nice progress today. We struggled in the first mile but we held our poise and raced well in the middle. The hope is that we can take a good-sized step in the next two weeks leading up to The American Championships."
