The ONU Men’s Cross Country team welcomes River Gordon
(Arden, N.C.), who has signed his letter of intent to compete at ONU, starting
in the 2013 season. He currently attends Roberson High School and will
graduate in the spring.
He plans on majoring in physical therapy and will also
run for the ONU track and field team. While at Roberson, he ran a personal best
of 16:16 in the 5K in cross country.
He placed seventh at last fall’s 4-A Western Regional
cross country meet and was the Rams’ third scoring runner a week later at the
NCHSAA 4-A meet, where he was 59th with a time of 16:43.
He was part of the Roberson 3,200-meter relay team (8:29.60)
that came in 10th at last month’s NCHSAA 4-A indoor meet in Chapel Hill.
