THE FLATS- For the second time in as many meets, Georgia Tech men’s cross country freshman Frank Pittman was honored as the ACC Cross Country Men’s Freshman of the Week. Pittman was named ACC Freshman of the Week in September after his collegiate debut at the Roy Griak Invitational.
Pittman followed up a strong performance at the Roy Griak Invitational with a stronger performance this week at the Crimson Classic. His time of 25:54.1 in the men’s 8k placed him 59th individually in the race in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Saturday.
The career best time for Pittman earned 48 points for the Yellow Jackets who finished 7th overall in the 24-team race. The Yellow Jackets finished a more than 250 points ahead of ACC foe Florida State.
The Georgia Tech cross country squads will return to action on Oct. 28, when they compete in the ACC Championships in Cary, N.C.
