Leavitt Named to All-Atlantic 10 Cross Country Team

RICHMOND, Va. – With his 10th place finish at the Atlantic 10 Championship on Oct. 27, senior Brenden Leavitt, was named to the All-Atlantic 10 Cross Country Team.

Leavitt, who has been one of VCU's best cross country runners over the past two seasons, also qualified for the NCAA Tournament with his time of 26:05.

"I knew that [Leavitt] had potential to be All-Conference because of all his hard work," said Head Cross Country Coach Nicole Cook. All his hard work has paid off and he garnered the All-Conference award and will get to compete in the NCAA Tournament."

The Virginia Beach, Va. native has been one of the Rams top finishers in every meet this season, and has not finished outside of the top-50.

Leavitt will be joined by teammate Mohamed Adam at the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships in Charlotte, N.C. on Nov. 9.
