Minar leads ND in SCC Tournament — Tommy Minar continued his stellar season finishing the varsity race as the top Green Knight finisher. Minar finished 50th overall finishing in 18:20.
“I was very proud of Tommy,” said head coach Rich Andreozzi. “He went out on a very brisk pace with the goal to break the 18-minute mark. He finished just short crossing the finish line at 18:20, but it was a great effort.” Oliver Shannon , Anthony Bruno, Brian LoCicero, and Rory O’Connor rounded out Notre Dame’s qualifying runner scores. All finished in the top-100 in the event. The youngsters stole the show as the freshman team placed fourth and the junior varsity team ran seventh in their meets.
