Grimster receiving first-place award at Auburn Invite.
Sept. 11, 2012
Grimster, the runner of the week, recorded his second career individual victory and third career top-10 finish, capturing the win at the 6K Auburn Invitational. In the lone home meet of the year, the sophomore was the top finisher for a dominant Auburn performance with a time of 19:03.80.
The mark was a new personal best for the sophomore Australian, who was competing in his first race of the season. Currently holds the third-best 6K time in the SEC so far this season.
The lone freshman competing for the Tigers at the Auburn Invite, Main posted a solid mark in his first collegiate 6K race. A native of Swindon, England, he finished in a time of 21:19.40.
The event was Main’s second career race, after posting a time of 30:32.82 (8K) to finish 11th in the season-opening Troy Invitational a week ago.
Auburn is in action next on Saturday at the Azalea City Classic hosted by South Alabama. For the latest on Auburn cross country follow @AUTrack on Twitter.
