Herd football uses bye week to prepare for future games

The Marshall University Thundering Herd men and women’s cross-country teams raced Saturday Sept. 14 in Rock Hill, South Carolina for the 36th annual Adidas Winthrop Invitational.

“Coming out on top in both men and women’s was our goal,” Assistant Coach Caleb Bowen said. “This was just the second meet of the season, but it is a good starting point.”

The Herd women were victorious in the 5,000-meter race finishing with 28 points and a total time of 1:36.49 for the team. Sophomore Madelyn Garrison led Marshall, coming in fourth place with a time of 18:59.1.

“It was a huge confidence booster,” Garrison said.
