CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Junior Javier Alejandro set a new school 8k record as the Catawba men raced to a 15th-place finish at the Royals XC Challenge on Friday afternoon at McAlpine Park. The women would finish in 19th place and were led for the second straight meet by Patience Hunt.

Alejandro set his new school record as he covered the course in a time of 24:23 to finish 14th. He bettered Ryan Willis’ previous mark of 24:45, which was set in 2003. Ethan Bemis had the next best finish for the Catawba Indians with a time of 25:47 to rank as the third fastest time on the books. They join Willis and Brad Heron as the only runners to break 26 minutes.

Hunt covered the women’s 5k in a personal best time of 19:03 which equals the 11th best time in school history. She placed 86th overall. Hannah Mercer clocked a time of 19:09. All five of Catawba’s counting runners posted times under 20 minutes for the first time in school history.

Catawba will next run in the South Atlantic Conference Championships on November 3 in Spartanburg, S.C.
