The Denison men's cross country team began its season with a team victory at the Sodexo Grizzly Invite hosted by Franklin College in Franklin, Ind.
Denison posted four top-10 finishes at the six-school, 85 runner event. As a team they finished with 41 points, outdistancing second-place Spalding by six points. Individually, DU was led by senior Chad Kosanovich who placed fourth with a time of 27:16.71.
This marks the first team championship for a Denison men's cross country team since the 2008 Wilmington Fall Classic. The Big Red's next event will be the Wooster Invitational on Sept. 15.
