Lucas Jordan Selected As ECAC Men’s Cross Country Rookie Of The Month

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Oct. 5, 2018) – This past Wednesday, the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) announced its monthly honors for the month of September for men's cross country and USMMA freshman Lucas Jordan (Littleton, Colo.) was chosen as the league's Rookie of the Month. 

Throughout the first month of the season, Jordan earned weekly honors from the Skyline Conference on four separate occasions (after all four of the races he competed in). He was the Rookie of the Week on Sept. 5 and Oct. 1 and was selected as the Runner of the Week twice (Sept. 10 and Sept. 17). 

The plebe has earned top-10 finishes in all four races thus far, including three in the top-five with one first-place finish. Jordan won his first collegiate race, the St. Joseph's-L.I. Friends and Alumni Meet, back on Aug. 31 after completing the 6K course in 20:19.5. He followed that up with a fourth-place showing at the Purchase Invite on Sept. 8, finishing the 8K race in 27:49.3. He came in third at the grueling 8K Van Cortlandt Park course at the Queesnborough Invite on Sept. 16 with a time of 29:19.2 and, most recently at the Mount St. Mary Invitational this past Saturday, was the seventh runner to cross the finish line of the challenging 8K course with a time of 29:24.
