Men’s cross country runner John Dugan ’15 received Patriot League Rookie of the Week honors for the second time this season after an impressive performance at the Princeton Invitational on Saturday. Dugan posted a time of 25:51 at the Tigers’ eight-kilometer course and helped the team claim eighth place in a highly competitive field of 14 teams. Individually, Dugan finished 56th out of 139 runners and was the Bison’s top first-year runner for the third time this season.

The consistently strong performance of the first-year class has been one of the biggest surprises for the men’s team this year. Dugan and Michael McGowan ’15 have led the first-years and together have earned Patriot League Rookie of the Week honors three separate times. Impressively, Dugan is the only Bison athlete to win this award multiple times this year and the only first-year runner to place in all four of his meets. With the regular season coming to a close and championships rapidly approaching, it will be important for Dugan to build on his string of solid performances. Over the course of the next three weeks, the Bison will compete in the Patriot League and Mid-Atlantic Championships.
