GUELPH – Mike Tate ran to victory in the Vic Matthews Invitational cross-country race hosted by the Guelph Gryphons Friday at the Guelph Arboretum.

Tate finished the 7.5-kilometre race in 22:32.7 while Connor Black of the Speed River Track and Field Club was second at 22:40.7. Mitch Ubene of the Gryphons was third at 23:10.1.

It was the Gryphons’ first Vic Matthews cross-country race since 2015.

The race also served as a tune-up for next Saturday’s OUA championship races at Bayfront Park in Hamilton.
