Bobcat Cross Country members Samuel Baumer, Shane York, Garrett Pierce and Wesley Moore’s performances in the A.I.I. Conference Championship qualified them for the 63rd Annual NAIA Men’s Cross Country National Championship. The event will be held on November 16th in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

This season, the Bobcats overcame the loss of several runners due to graduation and personal circumstances. Stepping up for the Bobcats was freshman Garrett Pierce, who led the team in several meets and boosted his own personal record. Pierce earned A.I.I. Cross Country Runner of the Week honors early in the season. Sam Baumer, a sophomore, finished first out of 36 runners in the A.I.I. Conference Championship, naming him both an A.I.I. Cross Country Runner of the Week and A.I.I. Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Year.

Good luck to our Men’s Cross Country team in the NAIA National Championship!
