Austin Peay State University GovernorsLouisville, KY – Austin Peay State University men’s cross country team struggled to get going at Saturday’s Greater Louisville Cross Country Classic.

Junior Konnor Kessler led the Govs for the third time this season, turning in a personal-best 26:56.60 mark in the men’s eight-kilometer event.

“Konnor had a nice race today,” said head coach Doug Molnar. “He’s stepped up big for us this year.”

Junior Tyler Kepley (27:28.57, 254th) and senior Geofrey Kosgei (27:43.63, 275th) finished close to the middle of the pack for the Govs. Junior Genaro Martinez (29:18.15, 340th) and freshman Austin Dabbs (29:54.75, 349th) also earned points toward Austin Peay’s team score.

“We were flat all the way around today,” Molnar said. “I’m not sure why; maybe it was the amount of time between the meets. Today was definitely not the kind of showing we wanted in a big meet.

The Governors will be back on the course next weekend at the JSU Foothills Invitational in Oxford, AL.
