MACON, Ga. (Oct. 1, 2008) - With less than five weeks until the 2008 Atlantic Sun Conference Cross Country Championships, junior Kenneth Rotich (Nairobi, Kenya) made a statement run on the course which the championship will be contested, winning the Mercer RunFit Sports Invitational to earn his second A-Sun Runner of the Week award of 2008, the conference office announced on Wednesday.

 

Rotich, who claimed his fifth Atlantic Sun Runner of the Week award, won his fourth individual crown of his career last weekend in Georgia. The engineering technology major blasted the 189-man field, finishing with a league-best 8K time of 24:09.

 

As a team, the Buccaneers benefited from Rotich's first-place performance; as ETSU went on to win the overall team crown.

 

The Buccaneers return to action this Saturday, Oct. 4, when they compete at the Greater Louisville Classic.

 

The Atlantic Sun Conference is an 11-member league committed to Building Winners for Life, with a focus on academic and athletic integrity and a balance between the two for the student-athlete, and maintaining a high level of sportsmanship. Headquartered in Macon, Ga., the A-Sun encompasses six of the top eight media markets in the Southeast. The A-Sun consists of some of the most dynamic private and public institutions in the region: Belmont University, Campbell University, East Tennessee State University, Florida Gulf Coast University, Jacksonville University, Kennesaw State University, Lipscomb University, Mercer University, University of North Florida, University of South Carolina Upstate and Stetson University.
