RUSTON—The Centenary cross country teams each nabbed a pair of victories at the Louisiana Tech Mook 5 at Lincoln Parish Park. The Ladies defeated Louisiana Tech and Louisiana College while the Gents finished on top of Louisiana College and Northwestern State.

Sunny LaGrone came in seventh (23:36) while Ashley Voorhies took eighth place (24:48) for the Ladies.

The Gents claimed almost every spot from 8th to 16th with the only exception being Matt Person from Northwestern State in the 12th position. Adam Walton clocked Centenary’s best time with an 8th-place finish at 30:06. Will Boothe was a minute back at 31:15 and William Fell was close behind at 31:21, just six seconds back.
