Powers repeats as NAC Runner of the Week

LYNDON CENTER, Vt. — For a second consecutive week, Kyle Powers of the Lyndon men's cross country team has been named North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Runner of the Week.

Last week, the Waterford, Vt. resident won the honor for the first time in his Lyndon career along with Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Runner of the Week honors.

Powers ran to a 41st-place finish in a field of 261 runners at the New England Open Championships held at Westfield State University Sunday. He led the Hornets to a 27th-place finish out of 37 teams which included 30 NCAA Division I and II teams.

Powers covered the eight-kilometer course in a personal best time of 25:17, the second fastest Hornet 8k time in the history of the program.
