Bermuda’s Trey Simons — who competes for Morehouse College in Atlanta — continues to excel, this time winning the 8k race at the SIAC Men’s Cross Country Championship in South Carolina, and being named the 2016 SIAC Most Valuable Runner.

SIAC’s event summary said, “Morehouse won the 2016 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference [SIAC] Men’s Cross Country Championship on Friday morning at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C.

“The Maroon Tigers claimed their 21st championship in 23 years and finished with a team score of 30 points.

“All seven of Morehouse’s runners finished in the top 20, including four student-athletes who placed in the top 10. Coach Willie H. Hill of Morehouse was named the 2016 SIAC Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year.

“Junior Trey Simons of Morehouse led the field of 73 by finishing first with a time of 25:32.13 in the 8k race and was named the 2016 SIAC Most Valuable Runner.

“Simons was joined by teammates Kiplimo Collins [27:40.14], Jared Allen [28:05.24] and Christian Dixon [28:34.61] who finished fourth, sixth, and 10th respectively. Morehouse recorded an average time of 27:45.69.”

In describing Simons win, Morehouse said, “At the 2016 SIAC Cross Country Championship, Morehouse’s Trey Simons ran like people were chasing him.

“The truth is that 74 people were chasing him – all of them trained athletes in running shoes and shorts. But in the end, no one caught Simons who finished first and led Morehouse to yet another SIAC championship.”
