Dotson wins GCAC award for third consecutive week
September 21, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — For the third consecutive week Xavier University of Louisiana's Mark Dotson is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Runner of the Week in men's cross country.
     Dotson — a freshman from Alexandria, La., and a graduate of Holy Savior Menard Central High School — ran four miles in 21 minutes, 58.7 seconds Friday to finish fourth in the Ragin' Cajuns Invitational at Lafayette, La. It was Dotson's third top-five finish in as many collegiate meets and the third fastest time in school history.
     Dotson is the second GCAC men's runner to win the award three consecutive times. Spring Hill's Patrick Aucoin did it in 2008, the first year of the award.
     Xavier's men and women will compete Saturday in the LSU Invitational at Baton Rouge. La.
