DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (September 17, 2018) – The Rollins men's cross country team took to the difficult Embry-Riddle XC Course Saturday, running at the Asics Classic in Daytona.
The Tars ran three runners at the event, giving them a great look at course for the Rollins-hosted Sunshine State Conference Championship this November. A true cross country tract, the venue features one of the few large hills in the state and multiple running surfaces.
The race included 14 teams and was won by the host Eagles. Florida Southern took second and Flagler third.
Jack Gabriel led the way for the Tars, finishing 113th. The junior posted a time of 34:43 over the 8k distance. Sophomore Ryan King was 115th in 35:16 and Luke Parsley finished 122nd with a time of 36:59.
Rollins will have an off week before getting back on the course Friday, Sept. 15 at the FLrunners.com Invitational in Lakeland. The race will be run on the same course as the season-opening Holloway Park Invitational.
