SEGUIN, Texas -- Texas Lutheran Men's Cross Country posted a team score of 87 points to take home third place at the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Cross Country Championship for the third consecutive year.

Trinity took home the title with a team score of 24 points, and Colorado College claimed second place with a score of 41 points.

The Bulldogs were followed by Southwestern with 98 points and the University of Dallas with 137 points.

Senior Donald Manuszewski (Cibolo/Steele) led the Bulldogs for the first time this season and posted a school record 8K time of 26 minutes, 48 seconds. Manuszewski earned a Second Team All-Conference award with the 13th-place finish.

Manuszewski is the Bulldog's first-ever member of the SCAC All-Conference Team for either gender.

Sophomore Caleb Calderon (Austin/Akins/St Andrews) and senior Rudolph Calderon (Pleasanton/Pleasanton) followed closely for the Bulldogs, in 15th and 16th place, with respective times of 26:57 and 27:03.

Senior Blake Westbrook (Victoria/Victoria West) and freshman Francisco Olvera (Boling/Boling) rounded out the scoring for the Bulldogs with 21st and 22nd-place finishes and times of 27:28 and 27:43, respectively.

The first four Bulldog finishers finished under the previous school record of 27:36, and Olvera moved up to 7th on the all-time list.

"The pack of Donald, Caleb, Rudy, and Blake was tight for a majority of the race, and I believe this helped them achieve their fast times," said Darlene Holland, TLU's head coach for men's and women's cross country.

Holland was also happy with the weather and the overall fast times.

"You couldn't have asked for better cross country weather," said Holland. "Crisp air and a flat course make for fast times. It was the perfect mix."

Holland is now looking ahead to the upcoming regional meet.

"Our intention is to keep this momentum going and head to Virginia in two weeks with a large contingent of Bulldogs."

The Bulldogs will conclude their season at the NCAA South/Southeast Regional meet in two weeks in Newport News, Va.
