Cross country headed in right direction

Saint Mary’s University’s men’s cross country team has concluded its season, reaching several milestones along the way.

“We took seventh place at the conference meet which is something SMU hasn't done in cross country for many years,” said senior David Feather. “I think the highest finish for an SMU [cross country] team was fifth.”

Feather is pleased with the team’s showing. “I am really proud of the work the guys have put in and wish them the best as I [graduate this spring]. There's a good group of freshmen that came in this year so some hard work in the off season should really pay off for those guys,” Feather said.

Feather has also had a great season individually, hitting the second-fastest 8K time in SMU history at 26:24 at the MIAC championships and finishing 22nd individually.
