Austin Peay has not encountered much team success at the eight-kilometer distance, with a .346 win percentage in three races. Individually, junior Enock Langat has led the Govs in each of their five races this season, finishing among the field’s top 20 in four of five races. Sophomore Geofrey Kosgei has been a reliable second with junior Boniface Yator following in third.

“We need to work on pushing ourselves from mile three to mile four,” said APSU cross country head coach Doug Molnar. “Most runners tend to settle after the three-mile mark, but we need to keep working forward. The guys are pretty healthy and ready to run fast.”
