Lattuca's Opening Day Performance Garners Conference Recognition

FOREST, Va. – Skyler Lattuca of the men's cross country team has been named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Male Runner of the Week for the week ending on Sept. 4, 2018.

Although just his first run as a Marlin, Lattuca ran like a seasoned veteran. The Middle Island, N.Y. native topped the entire 47-person field at the Bridgewater XC Challenge Friday afternoon, securing first place overall. Lattuca clocked a 16:12.26 in the 6K race, over 28 seconds faster than the second-place finisher out of Eastern Mennonite.

Lattuca and the rest of the men's cross country team will be back in action on Sept. 14 as the squad heads to Raleigh, N.C. for the Adidas XC Challenge hosted by North Carolina State.
