Seering, Smith top performers for Hawks on Day 2 of Romp

Tiffany Seering took fifth in the Women's A STXC race today, while Eric Smith finished fourth in the Men's B event.

Tiffany did her best to hang on to the four Lindsey Wilson riders in her field, but the tempo and the repeated climbs proved to be too much. Lindsey Wilson's Ashley James once again proved she is the best in the discipline by setting a blistering pace. While Tiffany once again proved her toughness by hanging in until the end despite pain in her right knee.

"Smitty" battled hard for third place in the Men's B race, but couldn't maintain the pace of Murray State's Eric Dobberfuhl, the eventual third place finisher. Smith was within seconds of Dobberfuhl's wheel, but was forced to settle for fourth place in the final three laps.

Our other B rider, Andy Fehrenbach rounded out the top 10.

In the Men's C race, Andy Ayers was in a solid third place when he lost control of his bike on a grassy downhill section that was still wet with morning dew. Andy remained upright, but lost his momentum, allowing Michigan Tech's Andrew Reed to swoop into the 3 spot. Zach Smith and Paul Meuer finished behind Ayers in fifth and sixth place, respectively.
