Seering Leads Red Hawks at Illinois

First-year Tiffany Seering (West Bend, Wis.) led the Ripon College cycling team with a second-place finish Saturday in the cross country race and a third place Sunday in the short track.
Seering's second- and third-place finishes were highlights for the Red Hawks in their second collegiate competition.
The men started things off Saturday at Kickapoo State Park just west of Danville, Ill. Senior Cameron Arndt (Madison, Wis.) finished the cross country course as the highest placed Red Hawk in 13th. Senior Bryan Nell (St. Germain, Wis.) was just behind Arndt in 18th. Nell was followed by senior Jonathan Paretsky (Eagle River, Wis.) in 21st, while senior Steven Siewert (Waukesha, Wis.) finished in 32nd.
Seering's second-place cross country finish was complemented by a ninth-place finish by junior Christa Kussmann (Beaver Dam, Wis.). Seering returned Sunday to take third in the women's short track race on the University of Illinois campus. Kussmann improved a spot from Saturday, taking eighth on a wet and muddy course that better resembled a cyclocross course.
Nell was the best finisher for Ripon in the men's short track event with an eighth-place result. Siewert was right behind him in ninth, while Paretsky and Arndt finished in 13th and 18th, respectively.

As a team, Ripon finished in 13th place (out of 17 teams) in the cross country event and eighth (of 10) in the short track.
