SUNY Geneseo alumni and Geneseo native Bobby Henchen captured the Friday Knight 5K on the SUNY Geneseo campus last weekend. Having also won the Oak Tree 5K earlier this month, Bobby is positioned to be the first ever triple crown winner of the Geneseo Trio, in its fourth year. Presented by GioVanna’s Pizza and Pasta, the Geneseo Trio will wrap up Saturday morning with the running of the Ramon Rocha 5K starting at 10am at the Saint Mary’s Church in Geneseo.
The Geneseo Trio winner is determined by the male and female with the lowest combined time from all three events: Oak Tree, Friday Knight, and Ramon Rocha 5Ks. In the male division, Bobby is the undisputed leader with two first place finishes and a combined time of 31:31, over three minutes faster than second place male Connor Lucas. In the female division Jennifer Apple is currently in the lead by 5 minutes and 12 seconds. Sixty six individuals are eligible to complete the Trio by finishing the Ramon Rocha this weekend. Every Trio finisher will receive an engraved glass.
Correy Solano won the female division of the Friday Knight 5K with a time of 21:06.37. Correy did not participate in the Oak Tree Race and is ineligible for the Geneseo Trio. The race had 218 finishers and benefits the SUNY Geneseo Cross Country and Track and Field teams.
