BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Denis Kipligat, Luke Freeman, and newcomer Jason Bowers have each been named to the 2022 Men's Cross Country Watch List, conference officials stated Friday.

Kipligat made his third straight-appearance in the NAIA National Championships last season after bringing home First Teamm All-Conference honors. Freeman will look to breakout during his sophomore season after a successful start to his career. Bowers is a newcomer with a lot of talent from South Africa. 

Standouts include Aiden Kammler (2021 NAIA All-American) who just won the first MSC Runner of the Week honor of 2022 and who was a part of the Shawnee State team that captured the 2021 MSC Men's Cross Country Championship, the program's sixth-consecutive conference title. Other notable names on the Watch List are those who also found themselves on the 2021 All-Mid-South Conference First Team: Kammler's teammate Jonah Phillips, Campbellsville's Shawn Little, Cumberland's Denis Kiplagat, and Cumberlands' Kyle Woodward.

CU starts their season tonight at the Redhawks XC Invitational hosted by SEMO in Missouri.
