Eustace grad Connor Melko registers top-20 finish at Patriot League XC!

Bishop Eustace graduate Connor Melko was Lehigh’s No. 2 runner and placed 17th overall at the Patriot League Cross Country Championships Friday in Bethlehem.

Melko ran 22:40 over the 4.7-mile course on Lehigh’s south campus, an average of 4:49 per mile and finished just five seconds behind senior Bradford DeMassa, Lehigh’s No. 1 runner.

Army went 1-2-8-9-21 and won the team title 41-49 over Boston University. Lehigh finished fifth.
