AUGUSTA, Ga – Augusta University runner Patrick Motes has been named the Peach Belt Conference Cross Country Runner of the Week. Motes finished in the top 20 at the Virginia Tech Alumni Invitational on Friday. The sophomore from Rome, Ga., ran the 8k course in 25:43.7, finishing 20th in a field in which Augusta was the only non-Division I team. He averaged 5:10.5 per mile, finishing just over a minute out of the lead and 30 seconds out from a top 10. His 8k time is the fastest run in the Peach Belt so far this season and his efforts helped the Jaguars to a fifth-place finish in the nine-team event.
