LOUISVILLE, Ky.– The Coastal Carolina men's cross country team concluded its season competing in the NCAA Southeast Regional, Nov. 10, at Sawyer Park in Louisville, Ky. Senior Blair Paul (Queenston, Ontario/Sir Winston Churchill) posted a personal best for the Chanticleers in the 10K race. The region includes all 48 Division I schools in North Carolina, South Carolina and Kentucky.
Paul finished in 99th place out of 200 runners in 32:35.85. Both Paul's time and finish at the meet were personal bests, who's previous top 10k mark was 33:23 and previous best place was 131st. Senior Jake Morris (Aiken, S.C./Aiken), the only other Chanticleer to compete, did not finish the race due to illness.
"I'm really proud of Blair Paul, going out with a personal best," Head Coach Jeff Jacobs said. "As team captain, he had a great senior season."
Liberty's Josh McDougal won the meet with a 29:30.70 mark, helping the Flames to a fifth place finish. North Carolina State claimed the team championship with 69 points.
