UAlbany's Paul Lagno Named America East Conference Cross Country Performer of the Week

Albany, N.Y. - University at Albany's Paul Lagno has been selected for the second time this season as the America East Conference Men's Cross Country Performer of the Week, as announced Tuesday, October 18th by the league office.

Lagno successfully defended his men's individual crown, leading UAlbany to a second consecutive team title in the R.K. Munsey Men's Championship Race at the 45th Annual UAlbany Invitational on October 15th during Homecoming Weekend. Finishing ahead of 184 participants, he clocked an 8K time of 24:42. This was Lagno's second first-place finish on the season, after completing 6,000 meters in 18:11.17 at the Monmouth Kick-Off to set a new course record. That performance also garnered the junior harrier his first conference weekly honor this season.

Following the UAlbany Invitational performance the men's team moves up two spots to eighth in the USTFCCCA Northeast Regional, the program's highest ranking to date. The Great Danes men's and women's cross country teams will now focus on the America East Championship, hosted by UAlbany on Saturday, October 29th.
