    Hillenbrand's Top-5 Finish Starts UK Cross Country Season

    Aug 30, 2013

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Kentucky cross country program opened the 2013 season at the Belmont Opener on Friday. The Wildcats were led by Matt Hillenbrand’s fifth place finish on the men’s side and a ninth-place performance from Cally Macumber on the women’s side.

    The 5,000 meter races were scored with a unique dual meet format as UK was only scored against Vanderbilt and Tennessee, the other two Southeastern Conference opponents in the field.

    Both the men’s and women’s teams split the results against UT and Vandy.

    The UK Men defeated Vandy, but lost to UT. The UK women beat UT, but dropped the dual meet to Vandy.

    Hillenbrand covered the Percy Warner Park course in 15:52.75 to earn a top-4 finishing spot. Freshman Zach Beavin was the No. 2 Wildcat finisher, as he placed 14th with a time of 16:14.66.

    Macumber crossed the finish line in 18:26.95. Allison Peare was 13th with a time of 18:36.44, and Anna Bostrom placed 16th with a time of 18:46.36. Macumber, Peare and Bostrom were all All-Southeast Region selections in 2012.

    Kentucky’s next meet will be the program’s first home meet in more than a decade. The Bluegrass Cross Country Invitational will be held at Masterson Station Park on Saturday, Sept. 14 - the day of the UK vs. Louisville football game - at 9:30 a.m. ET.
