Freshman Fearghal Curtin was named this week's Wingate by Wyndham Student-Athlete of the Week after leading the Buccaneers at the Big South Conference Championships this past weekend.
Curtin went out hard right behind the top runners from Campbell and Liberty. After a fierce finishing sprint, Curtin brought home a sixth-place finish in 25:24. Curtin earned All-Conference honors thanks to his top-12 finish.
An excellent team effort gave the men's cross country team a third-place finish at the Big South Cross Country Championship on Saturday in Lynchburg, Va. A team score of 86 and an average time of 26:29 resulted in the highest team finish since 1994.
