Hallam was the ninth runner across the finish line in the SBC meet, completing the course in 18:21.5 last Saturday at Bowling Green, Ky. That performance helped the Owls finish sixth in the meet. The Dundas, Ontario, Canada native earned all-conference honors for the second straight year.

The men's and women's swimming and diving teams travel to Miami for a triangular meet against Florida Southern and FIU on Saturday. Finally, the men's and women's golf teams close out the fall seasons at the Stetson Invitational on Monday, November 7.
