Porizky Named TCCC Runner of the Week

Gordon College sophomore Josh Porizky (Groton, Connecticut) was named the men’s cross-country Runner of the Week by The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) for his performance in the Pop Crowell Invitational on Saturday, October 2.

In a field of 252 runners representing 23 different New England colleges, Porizky placed fifth overall and first among TCCC opponents with a 26:47 finish on the 8k home course. That time, which helped lead Gordon to a seventh place finish on the day, was five seconds faster than the Gordon course record he established in last season’s Pop Crowell.

The Fighting Scots hit the trails once again on Saturday, October 9, as they travel to Westfield, Massachusetts, for the James Earley Invitational.
