CANTON - Tom Lauzon (Bombay) of the mens cross country team and Zach Meade (Tupper Lake) of the mens golf team have been named Roos of the Week for the week ending September 15, 2013.
Lauzon finished in fifth place individually leading the mens cross country team to a second place showing out of the eight-team field Saturday afternoon at the Southern Vermont Invitational. Lauzon paced SUNY Canton finishing fifth out of the 65-runner field in a time of 18:48 over the extremely hilly 5-kilometer course. The top five run is the highest place for the junior in a Roo uniform.
Meade had a remarkable day finishing at one-over par, 71, as he finished in first place individually earning medalist honors at the Fighting Tiger Invitational. The sophomore finished one stroke ahead of the next golfer and his performance helped lead the Kangaroos to a third place finish out of seven teams. SUNY Canton finished with a team score of 314, just four strokes behind second place Sage Colleges and nine strokes back of host SUNY Cobleskill.
