Griffith wins first-ever ASUN Runner of the Week award

LakePoint, Ga. – Lipscomb men’s cross country sophomore Silas Griffith has been named the ASUN Runner of the Week for the first time in his career, as announced by the league offices on Wednesday.

Griffith competed at the Fordham University Fiasco Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, winning the individual title with a time of 25:53.02 in an 8K race.

His time was the second fastest in meet history and the fastest since 2011.

Griffith’s performance helped the Lipscomb men’s squad to a dominant win as the Bisons earned 23 points, topping the second-place team by 46 points.

The Washington native shared the honor with North Florida’s Nick Morken.

Griffith and the rest of the Bisons will be back at it this weekend in Nashville with the Vanderbilt Invite.
