Liberty Men's XC Listed 15th in SE Region

The Liberty men's cross country team is ranked No. 15 in the Southeast Region this week, as announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Eastern Kentucky (No. 1) and Virginia (No. 2) retain the top two positions in this week's regional rankings, with NC State climbing into the No. 3 spot.

Liberty opened its 2016 season at the UVA Duals, Sept. 1 in Earlysville, Va. The Flames went 1-1 on the day, posting a 25-35 victory over Norfolk State and losing a 15-43 decision to host Virginia.

Three Flames clocked sub-13:00 times on the 4K course, including junior Cameron Francis (eighth place, 12:51), freshman Stanley Langat (ninth, 12:56) and junior Graham Hansel (11th, 12:57).

Liberty will remain in the Commonwealth for its next meet, Friday's VT Alumni Invite in Blacksburg. The races will be contested at Virginia Tech's Buford Meredith Cross Country Course, beginning with the women's 6K at 6 p.m. The men's 8K race will follow at 6:35 p.m.
