X-country finishes at regionals

Mens, womens teams not advancing in competition

The men and women of Liberty’s cross country teams ran their hearts out this weekend at the NCAA Division I Southeast Regional Championships in Louisville, Ky.

In the men’s 10k, Edwards placed 23rd while Klugh in the women’s 6k placed 20th. Both Edwards and Klugh earned cross country all-region honors.

Redshirt junior Zac Edwards had high expectations for his team going into Saturday’s meet.

“I (wanted) to see the team maximize the potential that we know we can definitely achieve. We’re all really fit and I think we definitely feel like we’re under ranked but we’ve just got to go out there and perform, even on an individual basis,” Edwards said.

Tolsma also had high praise for Edwards.

“(Edwards) is a very-high level runner and he’s a contender,” Tolsma said.

The Liberty University athletes finished 11th (of 32) for the men and 22nd for the women at the regional tournament.
