We award the Men’s Student-Athlete of the Week honor to the ALC “Running Eagles” Cross Country Team.
In the NCCAA DII National Cross Country Championship, held at Point Lookout (MO), the Eagles finished in third place, which ties the highest male team placement in school history. Junior Ryan Morris finished the 8K (5 mile) race in 28:22, which placed him 5th overall. He was named to the NCCAA DII All-American squad for his fantastic placement. He becomes the first men’s runner in school history to be so honored.
