ROCHESTER, Mich. - Michael Cox won the men's 5K event at the annual Golden Grizzly Open in 15:50.2 while Sammy Mondry crossed the finish line first for Oakland in 15:20.6, just three seconds behind the event winner on Friday on the grounds of Oakland University.



"I believe in this group," commented a satisfied coach, Paul Rice. "We've been training hard and right away you can tell that they're a special group this year. We had a great turnout today, the course is in great shape and I'm really excited."



The top ten finishers in the women's 4K were dominated by the Golden Grizzlies finishing in places two through eight all within a 32-second window. On the men's side, six of the top ten finishers were Oakland runners with Cox battling hard the last quarter mile of the race to gain the eventual two-second advantage.
