DURHAM  – The men and women’s cross country teams finished their second meet of the season at the NCCU Cross Country Invitational. The men defeated the Eagles, while the women were unsuccessful in their 5k competition with N.C. Central.  The men’s 6k win was led by juniors Saeed Jones and Christian Harrison and freshman Franky Mills.

Jones won the meet with a finishing time of 21:22, marking second consecutive year that Jones has won this meet. Last year Jones had the fastest time of the relay finishing at 15:25 in the 5k relay.

On Saturday, Harrison finished a close second to Jones with a time of 21:23. Mills was not far behind with a time of 21:27.

Redshirt senior Janessa Benn led the ladies with a second-place finish at a time of 23:33. Benn did not compete last year due to working a Co-op for Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing of America in Erlanger, Ky.  Sophomore Janay Ferrell came in third overall and second for the Aggies with a time of 24:33.

Both teams will travel to Elon University next Saturday, Sept. 14 at 9am, to compete in the Elon Cross Country Invitational. This will be a competitive meet for both teams as the women prepare to run a 5k and an 8k for the men.
