Men’s XC: Tommy Titan Preview
Men’s 4-Mile Start Time: 11:45am
Last season, the Mustangs put an exclamation point on the 2011 season with a 12th place finish at the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Championship Meet. LaCema Womack, head coach of the men’s and women’s cross country and track programs, was at the helm for the first time in 2011 and looks to build off the aforementioned success in hopes of a strong 2012 campaign.
Men’s cross country begins action on September 8th when they travel to nearby Cass-Benton Park (Northville, Mich.) to compete in the 26th Annual Running Fit/Tommy Titan Invitational. The invite is host to many of the region’s top teams from NCAA Division I to the junior college level. The team will be led once again by school record holder Anthony Butler (Lincoln Park, Mich./Roosevelt). Butler, now a senior who helped build the program as a freshman in 2009, will be flanked by returning talents Robert Crockett (Detroit, Mich./King), Marcell Houston (Detroit, Mich./Mumford), and Akil Prowell (Detroit, Mich./Crockett). The trio closed out their freshmen campaigns last year on a high note and look to carry over the momentum into 2012. Top newcomers Jonathon Rutkowski (Riverview, Mich./Gabriel Richard) and Lovell Walker, Jr. (Detroit, Mich./Allen Academy) add to a talented core of Mustangs that are focused on competing at a high level in their first year as members of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.
