Langat leads Govs at Louisville


APSU Men’s Cross Country

Austin Peay State University GovernorsLouisville, KY – As has been the case all season, junior Enock Langat led the Austin Peay men’s cross country team with a 17th-place finish in the blue race of the Greater Louisville Cross Country Classic, Saturday, at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park.

Austin Peay finished 25th in the 34-team blue race as Langat and sophomore Geofrey Kosgei posted the team’s only top-50 finishes in the 328-man field. The Govs finished behind a surprising Morehead State squad that finished 10th, ahead of regionally ranked Kentucky.

Langat finished the eight-kilometer course in 25:33.80, slightly behind his season-best pace set at Memphis last weekend. Kosgei finished 45th with a time of 26:07.10.

However, the rest of the Govs were well behind the front pair, junior Boniface Yator finishing 156th with a time of 27:05.09. He was followed by freshmen Tyler Kepley (207th, 27:42.40) and Evan Collins (234th, 28:00.70) to round out the Govs scoring runners.

“Enock continues to run very well, he had an outstanding race,” said Austin Peay cross country coach Doug Molnar. “We did some good things as a team. We were able to close our gap between the five runners, but we need it to get even closer.”

Austin Peay will take the upcoming week off before returning to action, October 16th, at the Fast Cats Invitational in Owensboro, KY.
