Men's cross country runner earns weekly award
Hamilton College's Ben Yeo '15 (Chevy Chase, Md./St. Andrew's Episcopal School) earned the New York State Collegiate Track Conference Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week award for Oct. 13.
Yeo led the Continentals to second place out of 17 teams in the 2014 Hamilton Cross Country Invitational on Saturday. He topped the 177-runner field with a time of 25:48.4 on the 8-kilometer course. Yeo's time is the second-fastest by a Hamilton runner on the Continentals' home course, and it's the sixth-fastest time ever run on the Hamilton 8K course.
Yeo has finished in the top 10 four times out of five races this fall and has finished no worse than 15th in any race so far. The Continentals are off until Saturday, Oct. 25, when they compete in the 2014 New York State Collegiate Track Championships, hosted by St. John Fisher College.
