ALABAMA’S NOEL ROTICH EARNS FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK HONORS
Alabama cross country runner Noel Rotich earned Southeastern Conference Men’s Freshman of the Week honors for his season debut performance last weekend at the Princeton Invitational.
Rotich finished first for Alabama in the men’s 8K, placing 11th out of 240 participants with a time of 24:22.1. In his first race of the season, he paced the Crimson Tide to a seventh-place team finish. He was also the second freshman to cross the finish line, following Hofstra’s Isa Suleiman (6th, 24:01.0).
Alabama will be back in action Friday, Nov. 1, at the SEC Championships in Lexington, Ky.
