ROCHESTER, Mich. - Andrew Bowman captured the men's 6K title with a time of 18:40.9 at the 14th annual Golden Grizzly Open held Friday afternoon helping Oakland win the team event with six runners in the top ten. Ashley Burr led the way in the women's 4K finishing second with a time of 14:40.2 as the Golden Grizzlies placed eight runners in the top 11 to claim the team title.



"Very happy with how it went today, everything went smooth and overall it was a great experience for the athletes," said head coach Paul Rice. "I think for the runners sake and a performance standpoint we were very blessed to have what we had as the weather was great. The turn out here was great for the college meet, I don't think I have ever seen this many spectators."



On the men's side, Oakland defeated fellow Horizon League rival Detroit 27 points to 29 with Jacob Bowman, George O'Connor and Tyler Delange rounding out the top 10. The Golden Grizzly women's team also defeated Detroit 20 to 41 as Courtney Stauffer, Sammy Mondry (last year's women's 4K individual winner), Karli Keur, Jenae Curley, Kendra Colesa and Lydia Stanley all finishing in the top 10.
