Lattuca Captures Third Runner of the Week Accolade

FOREST, Va. – Skyler Lattuca of the Virginia Wesleyan University men's cross country team has been tabbed the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Runner of the Week for the week ending on October 6, 2019. This is the third time Lattuca has earned this honor this season and his fifth in his Marlin career.

Saturday was a tremendous day for the sophomore from New York as he placed second out of 146 runners (Division II & Division III) at the Don Cathcart Invite hosted by Salisbury University. Lattuca crossed the finish line at the 25:12.40 mark (5:04.2 mile pace), which also set a career fastest.

Currently, Lattuca holds the top time in the ODAC, with the second fastest time coming in 25 seconds slower.

Men's cross country will return to action again on Saturday as the squad heads to nearby Christopher Newport University for the Captains Invite.
