CORTLAND, Ohio – The Rocky River boys team placed fifth at Saturday’s Legends Meet at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds in Cortland, Ohio. [results]
Senior Eddie Zuercher earned a fifth-place finish in a field of 233 runners. He paced River to a score of 133. The Pirates were bested by only four teams in a 23-team field. Three of those teams are Ohio DI programs (two of those are ranked), and a fourth (Mount Lebanon) is a top program from Western Pennsylvania.
Zeurcher crossed the wire with a final time of 16:08.9. The steady senior has produced four top-5 finishes in five races this season. With a time of 16:38.0, fellow senior Riley Robinette placed 15th.
River’s team score topped a pair of DII-top-10s (Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches Poll) – Notre Dame Cathedral Latin placed sixth; Bay placed 15th. The No. 2-ranked Pirates have now earned a top-6 finish in each of six meets this fall.
