GREAT FALLS, Mont. – Third place was the theme of the day for UGF cross country, putting in a strong showing at the University of Great Falls Open, the warm up meet before the Frontier Conference championships. Both the men's and women's teams took 3rd against a full slate of conference teams, while freshman Baylee Green took third place in a photo finish.
Green was in fourth place with 20 yards left but found enough energy for a final kick, overtaking the third place runner just one foot before the finish line.
Jace Kalbfliesch also gave a strong omen for the conference meet, taking 5th place.
Both UGF teams took 3rd in last year's Frontier Conference Championships.
