Austin Peay State University GovernorsOwensboro, KY – Junior Enock Langat finished sixth to lead Austin Peay State University men’s cross country team at the Fast Cats Classic, Saturday, at Yellow Creek Park.

His finish led the Govs to a third-place finish in the six-team field. Southern Indiana, which had five runners finish among the top 10, won the men’s team competition.

“Enock had a real nice race,” said APSU head cross country coach Doug Molnar. “Each week he keeps doing what he needs to do to be all-conference at the end of the year. I thought overall as a team we ran a solid race, we were fairly aggressive and moved when we needed to move.”

Behind Langat, sophomore Geofrey Kosgei finished 11th with a time of 26:13.44. Freshman Tyler Kepley (31st, 27:40.97), junior Boniface Yator (32nd, 27:41.50) and freshman Genaro Martinez (39th, 28:10.26) finished among the Govs top five. Sophomore Evan Collins (42nd, 28:20.74) and freshman Konnor Kessler (54th, 29:50.92) rounded out the Govs effort.

Austin Peay returns to action at the 2010 Ohio Valley Conference Cross Country Championships, Saturday, October 30th in Cookeville, TN, hosted by Tennessee Tech.
