Senior co-captains, Weldon Ehlert (26:41) and Zac Yanis (26:56) led the pack of Bisons to a seventh place finish at the last meet of the season, the Atlantic-Sun Conference, held in Buis Creek at Campbell University.

Bisons Coach Karen Robichaud said the conference was exponentially more competitive this year with newcomers East Tennessee State and Kennesaw State both placing in the top three positions.

"The seventh place finish does not adequately reflect how well the men ran; each stuck to his game plan and finished with solid times," said Robichaud. "The bar has been raised; and we embrace the challenges that come with a better conference."

Jordan Wilson 27:06, Daniel Pelletier 28:11, Clint Carter 28:18 rounded out the top five scorers, running as a pack the rolling hills of 8K course.

Matt McWhirter 28:31, and Naeem Thompson 28:31 ended the season well with improvements over last years times.
