ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The Catawba men’s and women’s cross country squads were picked fifth in the 2019 South Atlantic Preseason Coaches Poll. The men were four points behind Lincoln Memorial in the poll, while the women were just three points off Wingate for the fourth spot.
 
Queens was favorite in both polls, claiming 11 of the 12 first-place votes. Wingate, third in the men and fourth in the women, grabbed the other first place vote in each poll. Anderson was slotted second in both polls.

The 2019 season looks to be another exciting one in the SAC, as 11 all-conference runners from the 2018 SAC Championship return on the men’s side and 12 for the women. Catawba senior Hannah Mercer was a second team All-SAC runner last year, while senior Patience Hunt took honorable mention honors.
 
The cross country season will begin on Friday, Sep. 6, with five SAC teams kicking off their seasons. Catawba will host the Fleet Feet Invite on Saturday morning at Salisbury Community Park beginning at 8:30 am.
