Nathan Trimble Named Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week

High Point, N.C. -- Lees-McRae College's Nathan Trimble has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas men's cross country Runner of the Week during week number five in the 2008 season.

Trimble ran a season best 27:54 time at The Citadel's Charleston Invitational 8K course that was good enough for a tenth place individual finish. The junior from Spring, Texas led the Bobcats to a fourth place team finish out of eleven teams. This was the Bobcats' highest finish so far this year.

"Nate is really coming on strong for us," said head coach Craig McPhail. "He suffered in the heat but was still able to put forth a good effort. This recognition is a tribute to his hard work."
