Sophomore transfer Ryan Gehman has once again been awarded the AAC Runner of the Week award for his performance at the Sandshark Invitational on Saturday. Gehman, who covered the 8000 meter course in a personal best time of 26:20, has now won the award twice this season and continues to run exceptionally well.
The Cavalier XC teams headed to the beach last weekend, making the trip to USC-Beaufort to compete in the Sandshark Invitational on Saturday. With over 20 teams represented, the meet provided yet another good opportunity for the Cavaliers to see how far they have come throughout the season, and once again, the Cavaliers did not disappoint.
After covering the 8,000 meter course at McAlpine Park in a personal record time of 26:27 while leading the Cavaliers to a 10th place overall finish, standout Sophomore Andy Roof was awarded the Runner of the Week award for the Appalachian Athletic Conference. Roof, who bested his previous personal record by 30 seconds, was the first of three Cavalier athletes to run sub-27:00 minutes on Friday, a first for the Cavaliers.
