The Mississippi College men’s cross country was picked by the GSC coaches to finish in third in the conference this season. The Choctaws picked one first-place vote and racked up 96 points in the poll.
The Choctaws finished fourth in the GSC Men’s Cross Country Championship last year. Evan Del Rio was the team’s highest individual finisher, tallying a sixth-place finish and earning a First Team All-GSC selection in the process.
Del Rio is one of the Choctaws’ key returners this season. The Huntsville, Texas native was an All-Region selection in 2019 and has been an all-conference selection in each of his three collegiate seasons.
Gabe Poulin (Ruston, La.) is another senior who will be expected to lead the team. He is a two-time All-GSC selection and earned All-Region honors in 2019.
The Choctaws will open their season on September 3rd with the Mississippi College Season Opener.
