Friday evening's home invitational was a success for the whole University of Montana cross country team. Teamwork on both the men's and women's' sides gave the Grizzlies the win at home in the Montana Invitational, held on the University Golf Course Oct. 4, 2019. 

The men's race was dominated by unattached runners, with Colorado State alumni and Hellgate High School graduate Adam Peterman winning the men's race with a time of 24:28. 

The University of Montana men ran in a lead pack. Scoring, they placed second though fifth. Their low placements meant a low score for the team and an easy win. No other NCAA D1 competitors were in the race, though some Montana State University redshirt athletes ran unattached. 

On the women's' side, the University of Montana's June Eastwood and Beatrix Frissell dominated the race, winning by about 40 seconds. The two teammates ran the entire race together in the lead. 

The Griz will compete again two weeks from Saturday at the Bronco Invitational in California.
