UALR Sports Information
Release: 10/01/2012

LITTLE ROCK - The UALR men's cross country team jumped to No. 15 in this week's United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) South Central Region Rankings following its performance at the 11th annual Greater Louisville Classic. The Trojans were unranked last week and last appeared in the Sept. 10 rankings at No. 11.

UALR's move was fueled by a third-place finish in the Blue Field at the Greater Louisville Classic on Saturday, Sept. 29 after being inactive since the UALR Invitational on Sept. 7. The Trojans finished third amongst 46 teams and were led by Felix Maritim, who placed eighth individually in a time of 25:10.19.

Shaun Koehn was the second finisher for the Trojans at No. 35 in a time of 25:40.23. Markus Pearson, the Trojans' top finisher at their season-opening UALR Invitational, placed 52nd in a time of 25:51.63.

J.J. Webber from Northern Kentucky was the top individual finisher in Louisville in a time of 24:43.30. Eastern Kentucky, the top-ranked team in the Southeast Region, took the top overall team spot with 96 points, followed by Grand Valley State (108) and UALR (243).

The Trojans will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the 24th annual Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Ark.
