LEBANON, Tenn.--Cumberland cross country took first out of two teams at the RedHawk Last Chance 5k on Saturday.

Cumberland's Denis Kiplagat was the individual winner while all six Phoenix competitors finished in the Top-7. Kipligat completed the course in a time of 16:22.2. Freshmen Ethan Rhoden finished eight seconds behind Kipligat for a time of 16:30.3 and a second place finish.

Joel Barlow came in third place with a time of 16:38.3 and Luke Freeman came in fifth place for a time of 17:04.2. Freshmen Andrew Cullins came in sixth place 17:40.7 and the last Phoenix to finish was Aidan Crockett with a time of 17:41.6.

Cumberland was originally scheduled to compete in the Drakes Creek Scramble in Bowling Green, but due to poor course conditions had to move their meet.

The Phoenix will next compete at the Mid-South Conference Championships on March 27 in Bowling Green.
