Amarillas Leads Cougars at Bradley Classic
PEORIA, Ill. - Senior Marc Amarillas ran a personal best to lead the SIUE men's cross country team to a 13th-place finish of 19 teams at the Bradley Classic Friday night from Newman Golf Course.
Amarillas led the Cougars with a 23rd-place finish, running a personal best time of 25 minutes, 31.8 seconds in the 8,000-meter race.
"Marc continues to run well," said SIUE Head Coach Eileen McAllister. "It was nice to see him run 18 seconds faster than he did at this meet last year."
"We didn't run at all what I expected coming into today," added McAllister. "Training has been going great so I expected fast times."
The Cougars look to close the season on a positive note with their final meet of 2011 Oct. 21 at the Illini Open in Champaign.
