Freshman Paul Patterson of Cleveland, Tn. led the DS men in the 5K with a time of 16:36:92.  Freshman Natalie Espinoza-Hensley led the Lady Roadrunner with a 2 mile time of  12:23:89.


After the opening event, Patterson said his eyes were opened to “the speed of college running.” The race gave the talented first year teams an opportunity to see other college teams.
