Lynchburg, VA - In the impressive indoor track facility on the campus of Liberty University, the men's program turned in another quality list of performances. This 40 team meet concluded the slate of January races. The squad appears primed for a February of many excellent performances as they inch towards The Conference Championship in three weeks' time.


Coach Thiel says...

"It was exciting to watch our kids compete hard this week, and to come away with some season bests and school records was great. Looking forward to another week of training and a chance to get healthier before we compete again."
