LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Tennessee at Martin cross country squads wrapped up their third meet of the fall this past weekend at the Greater Louisville Cross Country Classic hosted by the Louisville Sports Commission.

The men’s team was led by freshman Dalton Hudlow with an 8K time of 27:54.31. Freshman David Wells posted a time of 28:10.96 while classmate Joey DeSantis finished at 28:23.59.

Other UT Martin finishers include junior Josiah Roberts (29:38.02), senior Vance Pounders (30:14.25), sophomore Zach Phifer (31:23.77), sophomore Mark Graubner (32:11.45) and freshman Aaron Hall (33:02.70).

“Regardless of having three of our top guys not racing, it was a miserable day,” said UT Martin cross country coach Gordon Sanders. “Even the ladies were across the board tired. The good news is that most fixes are easy ones.”
