Senior Juma Mouchette was not too far behind with a seventh place time of 29:32.7. Rookie Nickolas Stackfield rounded out the top 10 finishes for VSU with an eighth place time of 30:09.2.
Last week's CIAA Coach of the Week, Wilbert Johnson, is preparing the team for their next and highly anticipated meet, the 2017 CIAA Cross Country Championships! On October 26, the Trojans along with the other 11 CIAA member institutions will travel to Salem, VA to compete for the title. Looking to bring home the winning trophy, the Trojans have been preparing all season for this moment.
