We award the Male Athlete of the Week honor to cross country runner and Lee, Virginia, native Ryan Morris, as well two freshman runners: Harlan, Kentucky, native Alex Lewis and Big Stone Gap, Virginia, native Jacob Bush.

In the challenging and prestigious Louisville Classic with 276 total runners, junior Morris led the way, finishing the 5-mile race in a new school record 5K time of 28:19 while freshman Lewis finished in a new personal record time of 28:45. This is the first time ALC has ever placed two runners under the twenty-nine minute mark in an official 5K meet.

In addition, Bush also set a personal record as he crossed the line in 31:00 flat.
