On Sunday, the Mountaineer cross country team concluded preseason camp with the annual Colton Point Time Trial, racing to the top of the scenic Pennsylvania Grand Canyon.

Jess Scordino bested her 2012 time by nearly a minute to set a women's Colton Point record with a time of 23:16. Scordino blew away the previous record of 23:50 set by All-American Brenae Edwards in 2011.

Troy's Lauren Norton finished second for the women with a time of 24:36 while fellow newcomer Beth Walker, of Sayre, took third at 25:24. Veteran Kristy Scordino finished at 25:38 with freshman Allison McCurry finishing with a time of 26:52 to round out the women's top five.

On the men's side, senior Mike Robinson turned in a 25:07 performance which ranks third all-time. Waverly's Will Mullen was second at 25:44 and Jesse Jones third at 26:28. Newcomers Joelsen Resimo and Ben Drexler finished at 26:52 and 26:59 respectively to complete the men's top five.

The Mountaineers open the 2013 campaign with the Mansfield Flatland Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Lamb's Creek Cross Country Course.
