TUSCALOOSA, Ala - The Florida A&M men's cross country team made a good showing at the NCAA DI South Regional on Saturday. The Rattlers finished in 17th place as a team, one place ahead of the hosting team, the University of Alabama.

The Rattlers garnered 417 points, with a 32:44.4 average in the 10K run. Shuaib Winters led the Rattlers, finishing in 17th place with a time of 31:45.5. Winters' performance earned him a spot on the NCAA All-South Region team.
