HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College senior Tyler Dunn (Jasper, Ga.) has been named the Conference Carolinas Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week for the first time in his career, announced league officials Wednesday.

The Jasper, Ga. native paced his team and the field with a mark of 16:18, beating out second place by seven seconds, as the Bobcats claimed the top team spot as well with four top-10 finishers.

Lees-McRae returns to the trails on Friday, October 18 when the Bobcats make the short trek to Boone, N.C. to participate in Appalachian State University's Blue Ridge Open.
