P a g e 13 G e n e s e o L a m r o n F r id a y , O c tob e r 20, 1972 H a r r i e r s R e m a i n U n b e a t e n Geneseo State barriers last week snapped Binghamton University's 21 dual*meet victory streak, upped their record to 14 and 0, and set the stage for their probable grand finale — the first undefeated season ever for any Blue Knight varsity cross-country team. Homecoming Weekend also provided the backdrop as Geneseo State romped over Erie CC, St. Bonaventure, and St. John Fisher in an Oct. 14 triple dual-team meet, and stamped coach Marty Kentner's crew as one of the Eastern Seaboard's first- rate cross-country squads. Running in clear, mid-50's weather, the Knights edged B in g h a m ton , 26 - 29, in 3 dramatic Oct. 10 away meet, breaking a Binghamton victory skein which began b y C u r i S m ith two years ago. Pacing off the 5.1-mile course in 26:53 minutes, Joe Contario snared second place, trailing Binghamton's Paul Mucci by only nine seconds Contario, a '71 SUNYAC All-Conference figure, was followed by Doug Colton and captain John Williams, who grabbed off the fourth and fifth slots. John Holgerson covered the course in 27:29 minutes, and finished in sixth place, trailing .Colton by just five seconds and Williams by a scant two. Mike Benton, who came in with a 28:10 min. time, edged into the ninth position behind two Binghamton runners, and rounded out the Knight scoring column. Four days latter, Geneseo swept past Erie CC, 15 - 47, Bonaventure, 15 - 48, and Fisher, 15 - 50, in a home meet. For the second time this year, Contario broke both the Geneseo and course records, covering the 5-mile distance in 26:36 minutes. Holgerson cap t u r e d second place, while Colton slipped to third. Williams and Benton grabbed off the fourth and fifth slots. Erie CC fell to a 7 - 2 mark, Bonnie slumped to 6 and 3, while the hapless Fisher Cardinals remain winless. The Knights go against the best in the State University System this week, as they travel to Albany State for the Oct. 21 SUNYAC Conference finals. Three days later, Tues., Oct. 24, they close out an already sparkling season, squaring off against Niagara CC and Oswego State in a 4:00 home dual-team meet.
