Appalachian State sophomore men's cross country runner Ryan Brown has been named Sun Belt Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week.

It marks the first Sun Belt Runner of the Week honor in Brown's career.

At the Greater Louisville Classic on Saturday, Brown led the Mountaineers across the finish line, placing 20th overall in a field of over 375 runners with a time of 24:15.0. His time also bettered his PR, set earlier this season at the Mountains to Sea Open, by two seconds.

The Mountaineers placed seventh of 41 teams at the meet, finishing ahead of SEC schools Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Mississippi State. App State also was the third highest finishing team in its region at the meet.

App State will send a group of runners to the Royals Challenge in Charlotte on Friday and compete at the HPU VertKlasse Open on Oct. 18 in its final race before the Sun Belt Championships on Nov. 2.
