Martin Named Runner of the Week

Thomasville, NC--Lees-McRae College men's cross country runner Lewis Martin's strong performance last week has earned him the Conference Carolinas Runner of the Week award for week number two.

A redshirt senior from Charlottesville, VA, Martin started his senior campaign off at the Eye Opener Cross Country Invitational in Spartanburg, SC this past weekend, placing 3rd with a time of 22:50 at the 8K course. If last weekend's race is any indication, Martin should have no problem resuming the form he had in 2005 when he was named CVAC Runner of the Year. During his redshirt season a year ago, Martin was named to the All Time All CVAC Team, after claiming Freshman of the Year in 2003 and All Conference honors from 2003-05.

The Bobcats return to action September 29th when they travel to Charleston, SC for The Citadel Invitational.
