Janes Named Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week

YORK, PA - York College men's cross country senior Ryan Janes (Gaithersburg, Md./Gaithersburg) has been selected as the most recent recipient of the Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week honors. Janes captures the accolade for his performance during the week spanning October 12-18.

Janes led the Green and White to a team victory, York's third title of the 2009 campaign, at the Hood Invitational last Saturday. Janes paced the Spartans - his first top finish for the squad this season - with a time of 28:21.80 to secure an individual fourth-place finish in the 123-participant race.

Having taken place at Heritage Farm Park in Frederick, Md., the Hood Invitational provided Janes and the Spartans with an opportunity to view the course for the upcoming 2009 Capital Athletic Conference Championships on Saturday, November 7.

Before that however, the Green and White are set to travel to Towson, Md. for their annual dual with Goucher Gophers this Saturday, October 24. Start time is slated for 10:00 am.
