Women’s and men’s cross country teams both earn A-Sun championships

Lipscomb’s women’s and men’s cross country teams are each Atlantic-Sun Conference Champions. 

The victory for the women’s cross country team makes this their third consecutive time winning conference. For the men, they’ve earned their first A-Sun title.

Coming into the race, both teams were ranked number one in the coaches’ poll. Lipscomb’s men and women had four runners finish in the top seven.

The top runner for the women’s team was freshman Sally Larson, who finished fourth in the race.

“It’s awesome to have conference on our home course,” Larson said. “We have really fought with everything we had today. It was great to have so much school support here. I’m just thrilled for our team, and I’m really looking forward to the next 3 years here.”

Besides helping the Lady Bisons win conference, Larson has been named Freshman Runner of the Year.

Juan Gonzalez also had been named Freshman Runner of the Year from the men’s team.

“Everyone was ready for this. We have been training so hard from summer up until now,” Gonzalez said. “We all knew this was going to be a hard race, but in the end, we were going to do whatever it took to finish.”

Gonzalez and Larson ended their interviews giving all the credit to the Lord by saying, “All the Glory be to God.”

Coach Bill Taylor was named both the A-Sun women’s and men’s coach of the Year.
