‘The men had another strong outing this week.  Eric Steiger and Jacob Vander Plaats both finished in the top-10 as the men’s team put five in the top-20 and eight in the top-30 of the 145 person race.  Most of the men’s team raced to season or career bests.  There is a lot of movement between runners in the top-10, which is a sign of a healthy team working together to put the strongest scoring group through in each meet. 


Dordt will run at the Mount Marty Invite on Saturday, October 20 in the final prep for the GPAC Championship.
