ROCK HILL, SC -- LMU harrier Derrick Lindsay was named to the preseason All-South Atlantic Conference first team in men's cross country, it was announced on Wednesday.

Lindsay, a rising senior from Talbott, Tenn., finished in 12th place at last season's SAC Championship meet and earned second team All-SAC honors.

Mars Hill College, which has won 14-consecutive Food Lion SAC men’s cross country championships, was chosen by league coaches as the 2011 favorite.

The Lions received seven first-place votes, followed by No. 2 Anderson, which received the other three.

Meanwhile, Anderson – which finished third in last year’s SAC Championship – leads the league with four student-athletes on the preseason All-Conference team, also released on Wednesday.  Mars Hill had one student-athlete on both the first and second teams.

Lenoir-Rhyne and Wingate tied for third in the coaches’ poll.  The Bears feature one first-team and two second-team selections on the preseason All-SAC team, while WU placed three on the first-team. 

No. 5 in the preseason poll is Catawba, followed by Brevard, Lincoln Memorial and Carson-Newman.  Catawba and Lincoln-Memorial each feature one student-athlete on the preseason All-SAC first team.

The poll is rounded out by Tusculum (No. 9) and Newberry (No. 10).

In total, nine of the preseason All-SAC selections – and the entire first team -- were named all-conference in 2010 as well,.  The list includes Mars Hill’s Justin Gragg, whose second-place individual finish in the 2010 SAC Championship is the highest of any returning student-athlete.
