Matthew Gastineau (JR/Hershey, Ne) was recently named MCAC Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week for the second time this season. Gastineau led the Panthers at the Bethel Invite this past Saturday as he finished second overall. Matt ran the 8k course in a time of 26:27. That time broke the school record of 26:31 that had been held by Justin Stoll for over a decade.
Coach Justin Carver was very pleased with Gastineau's race and is excited for more. "I thought Matt ran really well and will continue to get faster. As long as he stays healthy then this Saturday could be another big day down in Winfield. He has worked hard all season and it's paying off. He has now become a part of the York College record books."
The Panthers travel to Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas for their next race on Saturday.
