GCSU split their squad, with a portion going to Minnesota and some of the men’s team journeying down the road from Milledgeville to Macon to run in the Julius Johnson Invitational.

The team had a strong showing, placing first out of the three non-Division I teams at the meet in the 8k run.

Three Georgia College runners had finished up prior to the lead runner for the next non-Division I team.
