Nick Pierce of the Liberty Flames Sports Network recently accomplished something very few runners are able to do, catch up with Liberty men's cross country All-American Azaria Kirwa.

Kirwa, a senior from Eldoret, Kenya, is the reigning USTFCCCA Division I Men's Cross Country National Athlete of the week and the ASUN Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week.

The nursing major has won both of his races this season, including the Virginia Tech Invitational 6K (Aug. 31) and the Iona College Meet of Champions 8K (Sept. 14).

Following a weekend off from competition, Liberty will return to the course for the Sept. 28 Queen City Invite at McAlpine Creek Park in Charlotte, N.C. The women's 5K is set to begin at 5 p.m., followed by the men's 8K at 5:30.
