VESTAL, N.Y.-- Graduate student Chris Gaube won the men's individual title, highlighting Binghamton's performance at its home cross country invitational on Saturday afternoon. Both the men's and women's teams placed second out of four competiting squads. Columbia swept both the team titles.

Gaube's win came against a Columbia squad which placed third at last season's NCAA Northeast Regional Championships. He covered the 8,000-meter course in a time of 25:48. It was Gaube second career invitational win, with the other coming at last season's Baltimore Metro Meet.

Freshman Jeff Martinez was the Bearcats' second runner, placing sixth overall in a time of 25:54. Senior Craig Coon was 15th (26:01), junior Adam Quinn finished 16th (26:05) and junior Andrew Ugolino was 21st (26:34).

In the women's meet, Columbia swept the first 13 places, led by individual winner Jill Goodwin, who covered the 5,000-meter course in a time of 19:07. The Lions placed fifth at the NCAA Northeast Regional Meet last season.

Freshman Rachel Miura was Binghamton's top finisher, placing 14th overall in a time of 19:43. Junior Kim Law was 17th (19:53) while junior Paulina Nunez was 20th (20:20). Rounding out the scoring for Binghamton were junior Alicia Finger, who was 21st (20:28) and senior Terry Powell, who placed 22nd (20:56).

There were 50 runners in the men's race and 42 runners in the women's competition.

Binghamton is back in action at the Lehigh Paul Short Run on Oct. 2 at 11 a.m.

NOTE: Gaube recorded the fourth-fastest time on the Binghamton course since the program moved up to the NCAA Division I level in 2001. Donald Drake of Maine set the current record of 25:29 on Sept. 10, 2005. Gaube's time, however, is the best Binghamton time in its Division I era.
