The Bay Area Track Club held its first Bay Area Cross Country Challenge on Sunday in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and both genders had a Hepster among the top five.
Former Cornell steeplechaser Max King finished third in 23:12, the same time as the winner and runner-up. That’s King in white crossing the line behind Ben Bruce and Kevin Chelimo.
Former Princeton Tiger Reilly Kiernan was fifth among the women, finishing in 19:49. That was 30 seconds behind winner Molly Huddle.
Five other Ivy women finished among the top 25 — Princeton’s Alexa Glencer (10th), Harvard’s Lindsey Scherf (14th), Cornell’s Stephanie Pancoast (15th) and Princeton’s Catha (16th) and Caroline Mullen (23rd).
