Women are SoCon Champion and Men are 2nd. I don't think folks realize how difficult it is for a small private to compete with schools like WCU and ETSU for example. The tuition cost differential means that those publics have a large advantage. There are only 12.6 scholarships for men and 18 for women to be divided up. Our tuition cost means that a kid can be a partial at SU and have a far greater cost burden than someone at a large public would. Baseball also has a similar issue. Kudos to our coaches!!!

While the Men got 2nd, they also ended the eight year Western Carolina domination in the 4X400 Relay - maybe the most exciting event of a meet.
