The College of Southern Maryland men’s cross country team concluded their 2019 season at the NJCAA Region XX and MCJUCO Championship at Hagerstown Community College on October 26.
Freshman Nathan Maldonado-Munoz finished the men’s 8K race 43rd out of 55 overall runners with a time of 34:39.8. He finished 22nd out of 26 Region XX Division I runners, and 40th out of 50 MDJUCO runners.
Freshman Brandon Harty recorded a time of 38:29.8, which put him 50th overall. He placed 25th among Region XX Division I runners, and 46th among MDJUCO runners.
“Nate ran a solid time while Brandon started out very good, but he developed stomach cramps one-third of the way through the race and it hindered his performance,” CSM head coach Ken Killion said. “To be fair, he was under the weather for about 10 days but made a valiant attempt to stick with those in front of him.”
This was the last race of CSM’s 2019 cross country season. “For a championship meet, everyone laid it one the line and came through knowing it was the last meet of the season,” Killion said. “Everyone should be proud of how they performed.”
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 email@example.com
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
