Brunnette Takes First Place at Burlington Invitational

September 15, 2014

Reporting for NCU cross country at the Burlington Invitational at not-so-sunny North Beach in Burlington, VT.
The day started with overcast skies, light winds and temps in the 50s that changed to drizzle by the boys varsity race (And then let go with a steady rain following the award ceremony).
Note on the course – it was advertised as a “fast and flat” course – it left out the half-mile hill at the start of the race, a gravel hill stretch and the fact that the course was a bit long this year, so basically not so fast nor flat.

As the coach said, things were a little flat in the first half.
