Bobcats' men's cross country junior Matt Mensher (Tolland, Conn.) has been named the Quinnipiac August Male Athlete of the Month, which was announced on Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014.
The Tolland, Conn. native helped the Quinnipiac men's cross country team kick off their 2014 campaign with a third place finish at the Stony Brook Invitational on Saturday, Aug. 30. Mensher was certainly the star for the Bobcats in the event as he posted the best finish of his career, crossing the line in seventh place overall. Coming into the Stony Brook Invitational with a previous career-high of ninth place, Mensher busted through the finish line with his second career Top 10 and also placed as the fastest Bobcat in an event for the first time in his career. The fleet-footed junior earned the result with a time of 19:21.42 in the 6k event.
