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.
