ROLLA, Mo.—The No. 12-ranked University of Southern Indiana men's cross country team placed 10 runners in the top 20 as it ran away with its fourth consecutive conference title and fifth in the last six years Saturday at the GLVC Championships.
Freshman Dustin Emerick (Elmwood, Illinois) led the Screaming Eagles and was named the GLVC Freshman of the Year with his third-place finish. Emerick completed the 8k course in 26 minutes, 2.54 seconds, less than 15 seconds off the winning pace set by Drury University's Jaime Villa Zapatero.

No. 22-ranked Northern Kentucky University placed second with 63 team points, while No. 25-ranked Drury placed third with 66 points.
Senior Bryan Phillips (Kokomo, Indiana) was not far off Emerick's pace as he finished fourth with a time of 26 minutes, 3.58 seconds. Freshman Brendan Devine (Bethel, New York) was fifth with a time of 26 minutes, 9.95 seconds, while junior Brandon Campbell (Portage, Indiana) was sixth with a time of 26 minutes, 13.43 seconds.
