Brathall wins Wyoming Invitational

By Doug Fitzgerald published September 3, 2004

Levi Brathall defeated 48 Division I runners to win the Wyoming Invitational cross country meet Friday.

Brathall and his University of Colorado at Colorado Springs teammates finished second to Colorado State. The Mountain Lions finished ahead of Division I teams Air Force and Wyoming.

Brathall, a junior who made All-American as a freshman, ran the 4.1-mile course at the Jacoby Golf Course in Laramie, Wyo., in 21 minutes, 48 seconds. Colorado Stateâ€TMs Josh Glaab crossed the finish line nine seconds later, followed closely by CU-Colorado Springsâ€TM Moses Tum, a three-event All-American in track this past year.

Taking sixth was the Mountain Lionsâ€TM Aaron Rubalcaba-Lopez, who finished in 22:21.

Colorado State won the meet by virtue of its depth. The Rams took second, fourth, seventh, eighth and ninth.

CU-Colorado Springsâ€TM other scoring runners were Brad Winn (16th) and Jay Luna (25th). Only the top five finishers for each school count towards the team finish.

Other runners competing for the Mountain Lions were Gabe Small (35th/24:13), Jason Braun (37th/24:20), Dan Pinter (43rd/24:33), Kyle Reno (45th/24:36), John Tucker (50th/24:59), Matt Chavez (52nd/25:14) and Kyle Cloppas (54th/25:20).
