Former Alaska small-schools cross country state champion Jacob Kirk of Anchorage turned in another solid performance yesterday for Montana State University.

The Montana State University sophomore placed third out of 65 male finishers at the Montana Invitational in Missoula, helping the Bobcats edge Gonzaga University by 11 points.

Kirk, of Grace Christian fame, finished the 8-K in 25 minutes, 20 seconds, tops on the MSU team.

In high school, he won back-to-back Class 1-2-3A state championships in 2009 and 2008.
