OBERLIN, Ohio--  Denison sophomore Benjamin Foster posted a top-10 finish helping the Big Red to a sixth-place team finish at the 2017 North Coast Athletic Conference Men's Cross Country Championship.

Foster earned second-team All-NCAC laurels for his finish in 25:51.3.  He was 1:18 off the winning pace set by Dominic Patacsil of Wabash who was the overall winner in 24:34.9.  This is a 38-spot improvement over Foster's 48th place finish at last year's NCAC Championship.

Checking in second for the Big Red was junior Jack Marchetti who finished 30th overall in 26:42.2.  Sophomore Clayton Watters ended up five spots behind Marchetti after a time of 26:47.9.  Senior Zach Munn took 48th place in 27:15.3 and first-year Adam Cromwell ended up 53rd in 27:26.2.

Placing just outside the scorers for DU was Rhys Fitschen-Brown (56th – 27:38.1), Kenny Connelly (71st – 28:33.7) and Henri Hegemier (99th – 31:45.3).

DePauw was the team champion with 40 points.  Allegheny placed second with 59 points followed by Wabash (79).  Fourth and fifth place belonged to Wooster (118) and Ohio Wesleyan (121).  Denison checked in sixth with 160 points while Oberlin (172), Kenyon (202) and Wittenberg (223) followed in positions 7-9.

The Big Red will close out its season on Nov. 11 at the NCAA Division III Great Lakes Regional in Delaware, Ohio.
