Sept. 16, 2005
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.--In the 67th running of the annual Indiana Intercollegiates, the Hoosier women claimed the title, while the men took a second-place finish overall. For the women, it was their second title in three years, while the men came up just short in earning their fifth-straight crown.
The afternoon got started with the open run (5k for women, 8k for men) with freshman Amanda Vanwanzeele of Purdue claiming the women's title with a time of 20:13, and freshman Jared Messmann of Indiana State clocking in at 26:37.
Freshman Charlie Keating was the lone Hoosier to compete in the open run. Keating turned in a fourth-place finish with a 27:12.
The final race of the event saw junior Sean Bowman of Indiana State capture a first-place finish with a time of 25:12. For the Hoosiers Eric Redman finished second in 25:20. Also finishing in the top ten for Indiana was freshman Brian Sullivan with a time of 25:46.
"We are pretty happy with the way we ran today," freshman Ryan Dixon said. "It is early in the season our goal is to do well in November (NCAA Championships). It felt good to get out there and race competitively for the first time in a couple of years."
The men will be idle this weekend and run again on Oct. 1 at the Loyola Lakefront Invitational in Chicago, Ill.
