Williamstown, MA – Under perfectly clear blue skies and unseasonably warm temperatures, the Lyndon State College men's and women's cross country teams completed with athletes from four other colleges at the Plansky Invitational, held at Mt. Greylock High School, in a coed 5k race. In addition to the Hornets, other teams competing included Williams College, SUNY Cobleskill, Dean College, and Johnson State College.
