"Syracuse started off its ACC tenure with a bang, winning the first Atlantic Coast Conference Championship of the season in men's cross country. This is the second consecutive conference championship for the No. 14 Orange, winning its final BIG EAST Championship race last season. Sophomore Martin Hehir finished in third place overall among 129 runners with a time of 24:05.5. Hehir will receive a third place medallion at the awards ceremony following the women's championship race. This is Hehir's second individual conference championship accolade as he was the individual champion at last year's BIG EAST Championship."
