LYNDON CENTER, Vt. — Josh Grant, a senior on the Lyndon men's cross country team, has been named the North Atlantic Conference Runner of the Week for the period ending Sunday, Sept.9. This marks only the second time a student-athlete at Lyndon has won both honors in the same week.

He covered the hilly eight-kilometer course in 28:26. Further, Grant helped the Hornets knock off the University of Southern Maine for the first time in the team's history. The senior also finished runner-up in the Mayflower Kick-off, finishing the 5K race in 16:10.
