BRISTOL, Va. – The Brevard cycling team closed out a solid weekend of competition at the Southeastern Collegiate Cycling Conference Championship (SECCC), hosted by King University.
Teammates Carson Beckett and Walker Shaw were recognized for their performances throughout the season as they brought home first and second place, respectively, in the conference individual championships. Beckett and Shaw received the honor based off an accumulation of points from race results through the entire conference schedule.
Brevard wrapped up the King University event with eight top five finishes, including a first place in the Dual Slalom by Shaw. Beckett reached the podium with second place finishes in the cross country and short track events.
Janelle Cole highlighted the women's team, crossing the line in third in the cross country event, while teammate Elijah Hyatt closed out his collegiate career with a third place (dual slalom) and fifth place (short track).
"King College was the perfect way to close the loop of my SECCC mountain biking experience," said Cole. "My first mountain bike race ever here ended three laps early in a fit of absolute rage. I'm happy to say today went much better, personally and for the team, because we had impressive finishes across the board. After today, I have no doubt that the Tornados are ready to absolutely dominate at Collegiate Mountain Biking Nationals."
Brevard closes out the season at the Collegiate Mountain Biking Nationals, which are set for Oct. 20-22 in Missoula, Montana.
