“Nick did a great job of working together with the group to keep the pack tight,” said Head Coach Jeff Pigg. “He is a team-first guy and that unselfish attitude makes the guys around him better.”


On the women’s side, UNF Senior Eden Meyer finished in first place with a time of 17:09.4, beating out second place by 12 seconds.

“Eden is very focused and working hard as usual this season,” Pigg said. “She had another solid race, staying in control while running fast.” 

The coach said he believes she will continue to improve throughout the season. The UNF Cross Country schedule can be found here.
