The men's team overcame despite being without their top three runners to post a solid performance led by Bo Meadors, who ran a 33:18 and finished 11th overall. Also finishing in scoring position were; Jesse Booth (13th, 34.01), Daniel Alvizo (14th, 35:52), Ty Williams (19th, 39:37), and Joshua Dubois (20th, 39:50).
Coach Sherwood continues to be excited about the team's chances this year; he said, "Both teams ran well despite missing key runners to injuries, every runner ran faster than the previous week, and we look to continue that trend."
The Bulldogs will have a couple of weeks off to heal up and prepare for a head to head match up with NAIA foe Brewton Parker College on October 2.
