Smith and Sampson Lead Men's Cross Country at Twilight Opener

Buena Vista seniors Steven Smith and Ben Sampson were the top-two finishers for the Buena Vista men's cross country team on Friday night, as the team began its 2016 season by running at the 4k Augustana (SD) Twilight meet at Sioux Falls, S.D.

Smith reached the finish line in 21:22.19 with Sampson right behind at 21:26.87.  Freshman Zach Kenny was next to cross in 23:36.35 while three others followed suit in succession.

The Beavers will now take the experience and have two weeks to build on it before they take part in the Woody Greeno Invie hosted by Nebraska Wesleyan on September 17.
