The Kenyon Lords cross country team enters the 2018 season re-energized and ready to improve upon last season. Notably, Kyle Rose ’19 is coming off a strong junior year, and looks to play a big part in the Lords’ success this season. Other runners to pay attention to this season are Tommy Johnson ’20 and Vincent Lewis ’20, both of whom are coming off a strong 2017 season.
On Friday, Aug. 31, the Lords and Ladies opened their 2018 season with the annual Kenyon Tri-Meet. The meet featured runners from North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) rival Ohio Wesleyan University, as well as the rival from across the Coshocton, Mount Vernon Nazarene University.
