Kaderabek Runs Sixth-Fastest 8K in Program History
Oct. 14, 2017
PRE NATIONALS RESULTS
Kaderabek's time of 24:08.9 placed 60th in the 292-runner field at Tom Saywer State Park. The Zag men placed 16th out of 41 programs in the race on the same course that will host the NCAA Championships on Nov. 18.
Peter Hogan followed in 80th place at 24:20.6. His time ranks 12th on the GU 8K all-time list. Jake Perrin crossed the line at 24:26.6 in 93rd place. Phillip Fishburn (24:35.1, 114th) and Bennett Gagnon (24:51.0, 145th) rounded out the GU scoring. Dillon Quintana (24:59.2, 164th) and Scott Kopczynski (25:27.2, 222nd) also represented the Bulldogs.
"Max led us with his personal best finish," Director of GU Cross Country Pat Tyson said. "As a team, we were narrowly beaten by No. 18 Georgetown and Notre Dame. We did beat the South Region's fifth-ranked team in Georgia, Boston University (No. 14 Northeast), Pittsburgh (No. 14 Mid-Atlantic), Dayton (No. 8 Great Lakes), Brown (No. 4 Northeast), Baylor (No. 5 South Central), Missouri (No. 8 Midwest), Rice (No. 6 South Central), Kansas (No. 10 Midwest), among others in the deep 41-team field!
"Overall, not a bad showing for us. It was a great rough draft for a young team! It was the first big meet for Hogan, Fishburn, and Gagnon. We are disappointed because we have big time team expectations, and I know the guys are hungry for the West Coast Conference Championships in 13 days, and looking forward to NCAA Regionals in four weeks! It's still early in the season and we have much more in the tank!"
Jordan Thurston was the lone runner for the Gonzaga women. She returned the course where the Zag women made history, qualifying for the 2015 NCAA Championships. The senior ran a 21:17.3 6K Saturday, placing 110th in the 297-runner field.
In Lewiston, Idaho, Claire Manley and Kellen Manley paced the GU women and men to solid finishes at the Inland Empire Classic.
