2nd In Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Belmont Bruins men's cross country team placed 2nd out of 26 teams at the UAB Blazer Classic 8K race this morning.

The team was led by two top ten places, senior Kaleb McLeod, who placed 5th and junior Ben Naeger, who placed 8th. The team finished with a score of 67. 

Others scoring for the Bruins were sophomore Taylor Vroon (13th), senior Declan McManus (20th), and freshman Finn Birnie (21st)

"I was pleased that we were able to execute a really solid race plan and the guys really responded well to a different race tactic." Started head coach Jeff Langdon. "Ben Naeger had a nice breakthrough performance and Kaleb (McLeod) just missed our school record for 8K. Still lots to work on before conference but, I think our confidence is back."
