CULLOWHEE, N.C. – After competing in four previous races this season, the VMI cross country teams are poised for a good run Saturday at the SoCon Championship slated for Saturday morning hosted by Western Carolina in Cullowhee, North Carolina.
The men’s 8k race will begin at 10 a.m. and the women’s 5k will begin shortly after at roughly 10:45 a.m.
“Our athletes are excited to race at the SoCon Championships,” said VMI head coach Dr. Drew Ludtke. “We plan to improve upon our team finishes from last year. The team is focused and ready to compete to the best of their abilities.”
Davone Hernandez has been the consistent leader on the men’s side while Logan Luckett and Anna Armfield have split time in the front of the VMI pack.
All SoCon schools will look to dethrone Furman, which has won the race five straight years on both the men’s and women’s sides.
