The Coastal Carolina men's cross country team placed 1-2-3 to earn its second consecutive first-place finish at the fifth annual 6k Coastal Carolina Invitational today (Sept. 18).

Senior Jamie McCarthy placed first with a time of 19:13.71, followed by fellow senior Ryan Caputo nearly 32 seconds after, and junior Max Hacker rounded out the top three with a time of 20:03.10.

"Jamie McCarthy had a great race today," Head Coach Jeff Jacobs said. "He took control of the race in the second mile and ran a strong even pace all the way through to the finish. Ryan Caputo continues to have a much improved season with his second place finish today."

Coming in seventh with a time of 20:30.51was freshman Jarod Williams while junior David Mead finished 14th with a time of 21:25.03. Rounding out the field for the Chanticleers was Spencer Lange with a time of 22:34.19.

Coastal had the average time of 20:11.52. Finishing in second was The Citadel, and in third Coastal Alumni. Placing fourth was Francis Marion with Limestone and South Carolina State rounding out the field.

The Chanticleers will continue their 2009 campaign when they travel to Bethlehem, Pa. for the Paul Short Run 8k on Oct. 2.

"We were a little short handed today without (Kyle) Kling and (Josh) Tormasi in the line-up today," Jacobs said. "Hopefully we will be back to full strength by The Paul Short Run where we will see a much higher level of competition."
