Maldonado-Munoz nearly beat out his teammate Harty by a few seconds in the men’s 8K race, crossing the line in 35:55.71. Harty was right behind him, running the race in 35:58.90.
“Harty was very aggressive from the start of the race,” CSM head coach Ken Killion said. “He was in eighth place for a good portion of the race, until he hit the hill about two-thirds of the way through. He started to drop back at that point, and Nate, who was about 75 seconds behind Brandon, was able to catch and pass his teammate. The course is very tough for the men because of the loop with the hill, and it showed in all of the competitors.”
Maldonado-Munoz and Harty finished 13th and 14th, respectively, out of 22 runners in the men’s field.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
