(Courtesy of yumacs.com) The Yeshiva University men’s cross country team was victorious at the York College (NewYork) Invitational, at Van Cortlandt Park, last week. Yeshiva earned 85 points as a unit. This is the second time the Maccabees earned first place this year, as YU opened the season with a win at the Baruch College Invitational back on September 9.

“This team continues to impress me with their ability to run tough and as a team,” Yeshiva University head coach Jose Miranda said.

Junior Jonathan Greenberg and senior Yonatan Schreiber rounded out the top 10, finishing ninth (30:40.2) and tenth (30:44.0) respectively in the 8k race. Greenberg averaged 6:10.3 per mile, while Schreiber ran each mile with an average time of 6:11.1.

Sophomore Zachary Greenberg finished 19th overall, with a time of 32:37.6 and averaged 6:33.9 per mile. Senior Yosef Pfeffer had a strong performance, finishing 25th overall out of 107 runners. He crossed the finish line at the 33:22.7 mark. Sophomore Joshua Hamburger was the 38th runner to complete the race, finishing with a time of 35:30.3.

Yeshiva will compete in the College of Staten Island Invitational, at Clove Lakes Park, next Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

At the York College (N.Y.) Invitational, the men’s cross country team ran in memory Ilana Pfeffer, Yosef Pfeffer’s sister, who recently passed away.
