DENVER —  Metro State held there the 5th Annual Metro State University Roadrunners Invitational. The race was held Oct. 4, 2014 at Washington Park in Denver Colorado. The men’s team came in second overall with a 70 just finishing 28 points back behind Colorado Mesa’s 42 and 18 ahead of UCCS who had 80 points. Metro was just one of the 13 men’s teams that competed.

As for Lady Roadrunners, they came in third. The Roadrunners had a team score of 75 which was 15 and 10 behind UCCS and Midwestern State respectfully.  The field for the girls were much larger as the lady roadrunners had to face 15 other teams.

The top two runners for Metro State were the women’s Breanna Hemming and men’s Jason Carey. Hemming who had a time of 22:38 finished second overall behind Heather Bates from UCCS who had a time of 22:35. “I kept pace with Bates,” says Hemming. I had her at the end, but she put in an extra kick and I couldn’t.”

As for Jason Carey he came in seventh place which was a success for him. “I had it going for a while,” says Carey. I was coming off from a little calf injury. Also I had a 10 second PR, I felt good. Coach Nick Maas agrees “Bri Look really good out there, and Jason did well after having treatment all week,” says Maas. We worried about Jason but he did well.”

The Roadrunners next meet will be at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference championships in Gunnison, Colorado, on Nov. 8.
