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. 

Duchampt finished the men’s 8k race with a time of 25:41, 16 seconds ahead of Mars Hill’s Alex Griggs.  Catawba was led by Matthew Jordan-Steele who finished in 23rd with a time of 27:42.  Nathan Hatley was the next Indian to cross the finish line with a time of 28:30 for 40th place.  Korby Chappell claimed 54th place with a time of 29:14. Patrick Karriker (29:50) and Jonathan Boles (32:10) rounded out Catawba race with 67th and 78th place finishes. 

The Catawba women also ran in the 5k championship but did not place enough runners to quality for team rankings.  Wright (18:12) outpaced Catawba’s top runner Erica Boles by over two and a half minutes in the meet.  Boles finished in 45th position for a time of 20:44.  Freshman Jennifer Lomax came in 53rd position with a time of 21:19.  Devan Purvis (80th) and Jordan Hunt (85th) finished with times of 23:27 and 23:59, respectively.
