CARLISLE, PA — The Frostburg State men's cross country team finished seventh out of 19 teams in the combined standings at the Dickinson Long/Short Course Invitational Saturday.

The Bobcats finished ninth in the 4,000-meter event with 102 points and placed 16th in the 8,000-meter event with 179 points.

The FSU women finished 21st out of 36 teams in the 6,000-meter event with 233 points but did not enter runners in the 4,000-meter event and therefore did not place in the combined team standings.

Sophomore Sid Bittinger (Midland, Md./Westmar) enjoyed a solid day, finishing 21st out of 199 runners in the 4,000-meters with a time of 13:25.49. Junior Brian Bonn (Glen Burnie, Md./Glen Burnie) placed 31st (13:38:07) in his season debut after battling injuries.

Junior Ron Lipscomb (Avilton, Md./Northern Garrett) finished 66th (14:03.28), freshman Stephen Forsha (Rockville, Md./Rockville) was 106th (14:36.72) and freshman Josh Dawson (Elkton, Md./North East) was 113th (14:43.60).

Sophomore Ed May (Bryantown, Md./La Plata) paced FSU in the 8,000-meter event, finishing 40th out of 260 runners in 28:01.40, while junior Mike Replogle (Union Bridge, Md./Francis Scott Key) was 65th (28:30.40).

Freshman Scott Yanus (Gaithersburg, Md./Damascus) finished 92nd (28:59.40), freshman Andy Watson (Gaithersburg, Md./Damascus) was 115th (29:23.52) and senior Kevyn Allgeier (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) was 156th (30:13.80).

"Sid had the race of the day for the men, Brian had a great season debut and Ed was impressive again in his second race back from injury," said FSU head coach Randy Lowe.

Freshman Bonnie Axman (Burke, Va./Robinson) led the Bobcat women with a 62nd-place finish (25:49.20) out of 203 runners, while sophomore Carolyn Kilkus (Rockville, Md./Richard Montgomery) was 86th in 26:21.33, a 26-second improvement over last year's performance.

Senior Beth Sauder (Oakland, Md./Southern Garrett) finished 135th (27:31.55), freshman Sheila Kurtz (Thurmont, Md./Boonsboro) placed 149th (28:09.35) and freshman Michelle Carlquist (Eldersburg, Md./Liberty) was 178th (30:17.92).

The Bobcats return to action October 18 at the Gettysburg College Invitational.
