Congrats to the Middle Tennessee State Teams!
Today the Men's and Women's cross country teams ran in the Sun Belt Conference Championships. I started following the team because of local runner Chris Mason. Today's results are to be commended. A total team effort on both sides of the course. The men finish 1st overall and the women finish 2nd place overall!
Congrats to Festus Chemaoi for his 2nd place overall finish. I also want to commend local runner Chris Mason on his 8th place finish and incredible year! You inspire many of us locals and we wish you the best!
