RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech's cross country team finished fifteenth at the NCAA South Central Regional Saturday morning at the 10k Cottonwood Creek Golf Course near the campus of Baylor University.
"I was hoping for the three seniors we'd have better finish," Tech head coach Gary Stanley said. "Fifteenth out of 33 teams is not terrible, but for those guys, we were hoping 15 out of 33 is not terrible. We appreciate the efforts of these seniors and their five years at Louisiana Tech. I'm glad to get on to track season."
First team-All WAC senior Kinsey Dinnel led the way for the Bulldogs with a 31st overall finish after running 32 minutes, 14 seconds. Second team All-WAC senior Zach Schuler followed with a 51st place finish at 32:52, while senior Nate Davis posted 33:49 for 81st.
Freshman Jack Ramstad finished 90th overall at 34:24, while sophomore David Monroe finished 105th at 35:05. Freshman Josh Slocum rounded out the Tech finishers at 35:53 for 113th.
