Kennesaw State will be the team to beat in the Atlantic Sun in men’s cross country based on a preseason poll of the conference coaches.

Lipscomb’s Bisons are picked sixth. Coach Bill Taylor thinks his team can finish higher, but he admits he cannot argue with the positioning.

“The men are right where I expected them to be and right where I voted them,” Taylor said. “We have a young team with a lot of potential, but we are also a team that finished sixth in the conference last year.

“We lost senior Ryan Chastain, who was our front-runner and a two-time all-conference runner. So, sixth is right on until we prove otherwise.”
