With the remainder of the team resting because of next week’s meet in Bozeman, limited squad competes at Sundodger
Senior Steven Kutsch and sophomore Catie Arrigoni were the top finishers for Eastern Washington University at Saturday’s (Sept. 14) Sundodger Invitational hosted in Seattle, Wash., by the University of Washington.
Kutsch a transfer from Sacramento State and a graduate of Spokane’s Mead High School, was the top men’s finisher for EWU, placing 61st with a time of 25:50 on the 8,000-meter course. The Eagles did not have enough runners to qualify for team scoring.
Arrigoni, who is from Oroville, Wash., and transferred from Everett Community College, placed 44th in the women’s race with a time of 22:25 over 6,000 meters. The Eagles finished seventh with a score of 219, with the UW winning the team title with a score of 19.
Eastern sat out most of its top runners for both the men and women in order to gear up for the Big Sky Conference competition the Eagles will face on Sept. 21 at the Montana State University Invitational in Bozeman, Mont. The Big Sky Championships take place on the same course on Nov. 2.
