LIVE OAK, TEXAS (Oct. 6, 2018) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) men's cross-country team placed fourth out of eight teams in the UIW Invitational hosted by the University of the Incarnate Word.
Head Coach Stephen Sherman said, "Overall, I thought the race seemed sluggish. The entire field just seemed subdued. That said, no matter. On a day when we were missing two from our top five or six, we still managed to show our depth by grinding out a quality result. I'm proud of our guys."
Capturing the overall meet was UIW followed by UANL College and UTSA. Following OLLU were Southwestern, Abilene Christian, University of St. Thomas, Trinity, McMurry and Schreiner.
