BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Three Birmingham-Southern men's cross country student-athletes will compete at the 2018 NCAA Division III Cross Country South/Southeast Regional on Saturday.
Sophomore Carson Chambliss (Auburn, Ala./Auburn HS) and freshmen Lucas Lamb (Homewood, Ala./Homewood HS) and Alvin Finch (Homewood, Ala./Homewood HS) will represent the Panthers at the meet. It is the first NCAA regional experience for all three student-athletes.
Chambliss, Lamb and Finch all competed in BSC's last meet, the Southern Athletic Association Championship. Finch led the Panthers at the championship, finishing 25th. Chambliss and Lamb came in at 36th and 45th, respectively, at the conference meet.
"They (student-athletes) have all worked hard throughout the entire season and have been top finishers from the start of the season to the end," said head coach Kenneth Cox. "This will be a great race environment for them to compete in, and with the strength of our South/Southeast Region, we are expecting them to produce strong results."
The meet, hosted by Berry College, will be held at the college's Clara Bowl, which was also the site of the 2016 cross country regionals. The men's 8k race will start at approximately 12:15 p.m. ET.
