In the men's meet, Jaguar senior Simon Hoyden took third individually, while freshman Robert Blackwelder was right behind in fourth place. Freshmen Matthew Johnson and Joey Castillo posted top-10 efforts as well, while fellow frosh Dustin Ross was 14th.
Both Jaguar squads return to action on Saturday, Sept. 25 when they travel to Aiken, S.C., to compete in the USCA Pacer Invitational.
