The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced that 295 women's cross country student-athletes and 224 men's cross country student-athletes have been named 2013 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes. The Bethel College Pilots placed five total athletes on the list; three men and two women.
The Crossroads League is historically very competitive. The cross country championship races today definitely showed that the competitiveness has not waned at all. With NAIA national championship births on the line teams battled hard. The runners were also battered by the strong winds prevailing over the course. The Bethel harriers demonstrated that the teams have a bright future with the progression of their youth.
It's the last weekend for teams to make noise in the ratings prior to the conference championship weekend. The NAIA Great Lakes Challenge is one of the biggest meets taking place with several ranked teams competing. All in all it was a very competitive environment.
God presented the competition with a beautiful sunny day at the Bethel Invitational held at St. Patrick's Park in South Bend. The home meet gave the Pilot harriers a chance to compete in front of a home crowd. The results reveal good improvement from the previous meets.
