CORNING — The Fulton-Montgomery Community College cross country teams competed in the Corning Invitational on Saturday at Corning Community College.
The men’s team ran an 8k and finished in third place. Sophomore Jon Hendley finished in 14th place with a time of 39:18.165. Ryan Schopmeier was the next finisher for the Raiders.

Dakota Dingman rounded out the Raiders’ finishers, placing 25th with a time of 1:15:21.583.
The men’s team was ranked eighth in the week two U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll.
Due to not enough runners on each team, there was no team winner of the 5K women’s race. FMCC’s Kira Williams continued to stay undefeated on the season, finishing first with a time of 25:44.242. Maria Fernandez finished in eighth place with a time of 38:04.88.
FMCC is scheduled to travel to Finger Lakes Community College for its next meet on Oct. 24.
