Byrne advances to nationals as individual,
Eagles place fifth overall

University of Southern Indiana menís cross country runner Joey Byrne (Georgetown, Indiana) ran a 10k time of 32:19.4 and finished third at the Great Lakes Regional Championships Saturday morning at Rolling Hills Golf Course in Hudsonville, Michigan.
