ARKADELPHIA, Ark. – The Wiley College men’s cross country team opened the 2022 season with a fourth-place finish at the Bob Gravett Invitational hosted by Ouachita Baptist University Saturday.
The Wildcats scored 126 points and finished the 5,000-kilometer road race in an hour and 37 minutes. They defeated Hendrix College – a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III school. Michael Lewis paced the team with a time of 19:00.8 – which was 23rd out of runners from schools who qualified in the team standings – and 38th overall. Javoun Goldsby followed at 19:07.4. Robert Bullock (19:12.7), Joseph Levier III (19:17) and Tyvonne Allen (20:56.6) rounded out the scoring for Wiley College.
“I’m very pleased with my team,” head coach LaMark Carter said. “The men did a good job of staying together. The course was a road race with a hill instead of the grass courses which we are used to. The road was hard but we’re focused on the rest of our season.”
Wiley College will run next at the Steve Guymon Invitational hosted by Harding University on September 16.
