Cross country Bucs win dual race with South Harrison

Brycen Allen ran fifth for the Bucs at the Paw Paw Invitational with a time of 26:42.64.

PAW PAW – Jordan Gillum won a rare two-team cross country outing for the Buckhannon-Upshur Buccaneers at the Paw Paw Invitational Thursday evening.

The event was supposed to have six teams but saw four teams cancel late.

The Bucs were supposed to run today at St. Mary’s but a very late start time forced the Bucs to run at Paw Paw instead.

Gillum outlasted 14 other runners for the win, posting a time of 22:36.55.

B-U’s Jack Waggy was second with a time of 23:06.22.

South Harrison’s Carter Bowie was third with a time of 24:36.93.

B-U took fourth and fifth as Reis Leonard was fourth with a time of 25:06.97 and Brycen Allen was fifth with a clocking of 26:42.64.

The rest of the B-U line-up were Alex Casto in seventh (27:12.39), Roman Rizo in 12th (33:46.46), Ryan Dowell in 14th (34:30.56), and Rhett Ammons in 15th (34:42.45).

The Bucs will run again this Saturday at Forest Festival Invitational at Davis & Elkins.
