HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA - Andrew Craver (East Bend, NC/Forbush) and Andrew Stoddard (Richmond, VA/Mills E. Godwin) will be participating in the NCAA South/Southeast Regional Championship in Seguin, TX, this Saturday. The men's race is scheduled to start at noon local time.
Stoddard has led the team in every event this year. He posted a career-best 8K time of 27:29 at the Great American Cross Country Festival. At the ODAC Championships two weekends ago, he paced the muddy course on a chilly day in 27:51, 17 seconds better than the time he produced on the same course under optimal weather conditions to start the season at the Hornet Cross Country Challenge.
Craver returned to competition at the ODAC Championship after having last competed on September 3rd. The long layoff didn't phase him as he finished the meet in 28:39, 12 seconds fater than the time he recorded at the Hornet Cross Country Challenge.
