RUSTON, La. - The Louisiana Tech men's cross country team opened the 2015 season with a seventh place finish at the Ken Garland Invitational at Eagle Point Cross Country on Saturday morning in Denton, Texas.

The Bulldogs faced a challenging field featured 2014 Conference USA champion North Texas, as well as three teams out of the Big 12 in Oklahoma, Baylor and TCU.

Junior Logan Pearce recorded a top 30 finish in the crowded field, finishing the four mile race with a time of 20:35.65. Following Pearce was sophomore Kraemer Jackson who finished with a team of 21:17.17 and junior Tom Stringer who finished with a time of 21:21.78. Both Jackson and String finished in the top 50 runners overall.

"I thought the kids ran hard and with only a week of practice, I thought meet went okay," head coach Gary Stanley said. "I also thought Logan Pearce ran really well."

Rounding out the scoring for the Bulldogs was freshman Brandon Lewis-Graham who ran the course in 21:54.80 and junior Paul Dauterive who finished with a time of 22:25.74.

Louisiana Tech's next action comes at home when the Bulldogs host the Mook Triple-Duals on September 19 in Ruston.
