Nov. 13, 2015

College Station, Texas - Louisiana Tech men’s cross country program wrapped up their season on Friday morning, with an 18th-place finish at the NCAA South Central Regionals in College Station, Texas.

Led by Manoah Kiptum, who finished the 10,000-meter race in 31:56.8, the Bulldogs finished ahead of four other in-state schools. Logan Pearce finished just behind Kiptum, with a time of 32:29.4.

Both Kiptum, who finished 56th, and Pearce, who finished 76th, recorded top-100 finishes in a field that included over 160 competitors.

Kraemer Jackson finished just outside the top-100 with a time of 33:05.1. Tom Stringer was the fourth scorer for the Bulldogs with his time of 33:32.6. Wrapping up the scoring for LA Tech was Drake Heinz who finished the race with a time of 34:36.2.

“With 38 teams in the region and only 24 teams competing, 18 is a reasonable finish,” head coach Gary Stanley said. “We have such a young team right now so I was satisfied with the performance.”

In the team scoring, Arkansas took home their third consecutive South Central Regional Title, just edging out Texas.
