Senior Richard Chautin followed up his win last weekend with another strong performance Saturday, finishing second with a time of 25 minutes, 58.90 seconds.
"What can you say about Richard," cross country coach Mark Elliott said. "In just his second race, he finished second. He is learning to be more than just a member on the team. He is assuming his role as being the best guy on the team and he is running well."
"I am learning to count on Tim," said Elliott, "and he is doing extremely well."
Junior Laura Carleton led the way for the women's team, finishing in sixth place with a time of 21:24.28. Sophomore Brea Goodman followed Carleton, clocking a 21:42.17 and placing 11th.
"Laura Carleton, the Goodman twins, Leigh-Ann Nacarri and Lauren Ybarzabal all ran well," Elliott said. "Overall, the effort on the women's side was good."
The Cross Country teams are off next weekend before heading to Lake Charles for the McNeese Cowboy Stampede on October 9.
