SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba College men’s cross country team placed in 10th position in the 2014 South Atlantic Conference cross country championship Saturday morning at Salisbury Community Park. Catawba College hosted the twelve team men’s and women’s championship.
The Mars Hill University men and the Wingate University women claimed the overall team championships. Queens University’s Felix Duchampt and Megan Wright were named Runners of the Year after claiming the individual victory for their respective races.
