Merrimack runners capture crown

RINDGE, N.H. – Led by three Warrior runners finishing inside the top five, the Merrimack College women’s cross country team claimed its first team victory of the season in commanding fashion yesterday, finishing first atop a 10-team field at the Bruce Kirsh Cross Country Cup hosted by Franklin Pierce University.

A trio of Warrior women were responsible for the team title on Saturday, as junior Kelsey Grimmer, freshman Tiana Kibbe and senior Fiona Coleman each finished back-to-back-to-back in third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

Senior Brianna Devereaux of Londonderry placed 10th in 22:43.

Warrior men run to 3rd

Paced by four different racers finishing inside the top 15, the Merrimack College men’s cross country team finished third overall yesterday at the Kirsch Cross Country Cup hosted by Franklin Pierce University.

Coming off last week’s second-place finish at the Shacklette Invitational, Merrimack placed third after a combined time of 1:32:05, finishing behind host Franklin Pierce and runner-up American International in the nine-team field.

Leading the way for the Warriors was a combination of underclassmen and upperclassmen, as rookie Dan O’Flynn of Ipswich paced the Navy and Gold with a time of 18:15 in the 5K course, finishing 11th overall in the process., just ahead of Lawrence’s Luis Cruz in 13th (18:19).

Waldie scores in loss

Junior goalkeeper Gina Rosinski of Derry matched her season-high with a seven-save performance, but host Adelphi used a three-goal output in the second half to claim a 5-1 victory over the No. 5 Merrimack College field hockey team yesterday afternoon.

Senior Candace Waldie of North Andover notched her third goal of the season to account for the only offensive output of the game for the Warriors.
