Casart posts season-best time at Yellow Jacket Invite

LAMONI, Iowa -- Chris Casart ran a season-best race to lead four Bruins at the Yellow Jacket Invitational, hosted by Graceland University.


The Bruins were unable to field a complete team and had just four runners compete. Chris Casart set the pace with a third place finish with a season-best time of 27:21.70.

Cole Wagner (28:54.20) and Gerardo Najera (29:07.60) both snagged top 10 finishes as they placed seventh and ninth, respectively, in the 20-runner field.

Aaron Newton clocked in a time of 30:35.60 to place 14th.

Team Standings:

1. Central Methodist -- 24
2. Graceland -- 32

Coach Craig Christians:

"Chris Casart was solid today, king of getting into 'no man's land' by himself for much of the race but he remained focused and finished with a 20-second season-best."
