The BC men traveled to Blacksburg, VA for the ACC Cross Championships last weekend, competing in the 8km distance on a challenging course and an even more challenging conference. Led by seniors Louis Serafini, Tyler King and Jordan Hamm, the Eagles improved to 8th place, bettering their 2011 finish by three spots. In a conference that ranks as once of the nation’s best, a total of 46 athletes, including both Serafini and King, broke the previous course record of 25:08. Serafini finished in 34th place overall with a 24:49, while King finished in 46th place with a 25:07. Hamm finished in 53rd overall, Anthony Bellitti was 61st and James Glover rounded out the top-5 for the Eagles, running to an 82nd place finish.
The Eagles will look to build on their 2012 improvements when they travel to Connecticut next week for the NCAA Northeast Regional Championships. In the 2011 season the BC men placed 14th overall, but have a 2012 squad that will be aiming to crack the top-10 in the NCAA region for the first time in many years.
