The John Carroll Men’s Cross Country ran their way into the record books with a tenacious performance at the Division III National Championships in Louisville, Kentucky over the weekend. Junior Alex Phillip led the way, winning the race and becoming the first national champion in Ohio Athletic Conference history. He also set the Sawyer State Park course record for a Division III National Championship.
“I’m still processing it. I was sitting in my marketing class Monday morning and it kind of hit me, but it still feels surreal,” Phillip says of the accomplishment.
