HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Newberry senior Eric Cannon (Newberry, S.C.) won his first meet of the season with a time of 16:29 for the 5K run, eight seconds faster than St. Andrews’ Tim Bourke at the Coker College Invitational Saturday morning.

The finish is Cannon’s third top ten of the year and the first victory for a Newberry runner since the fall of 2001, when Brandon Downey won four individual honors for the Indians. In team scores, the men finished third of the three teams in the meet, while the women’s team did not place a team score.

Newberry runs for the gold at the South Atlantic Conference Championships, hosted by Wingate University, next Saturday, October 25.
