Landmark Announces Players of the Week

TOWSON, Md. – The Landmark Conference has released the Players of the Week. The conference will recognize a student-athlete for each sport based on their contributions to their team throughout the season.

Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week
Dillon Farrell
Moravian (Jr., North Wales, Pa.)

Farrell finished in sixth place in a massive field of 372 runners at the Paul Short Run – Brown Race at Lehigh University on Saturday afternoon to lead the Moravian men's cross country team. Farrell ran a 25:26 in his first 8,000-meter race of the season, which is the senior's second best career time in the 8K and the third fastest in Moravian history. His finishing time was only 22 seconds behind the race's winner, Khari Bowen of NCAA Division I Monmouth University. Farrell was also 1:25 ahead of his closest Landmark competitor. Farrell's phenomenal time helped the Greyhounds finish 33rd out of 46 in the team competition in the Brown Race, which featured multiple Division I and II schools and the deepest field Moravian will face all season.
