CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Brevard College Cycling team accumulated several strong results at the North Carolina CycloCross (NCCX) Series event held Sunday, November 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

At the event in Charlotte, Brevard College riders won three races to go along with four podiums and seven top-tens.
BC senior Hannah Arensman won the Women's Pro Category 1/2/3 race. A Brevard College racer also won the Women's Category 3/4 race as freshman Emma Schwab took that event's crown with her teammate Michaela Gray placing fourth.
Brevard College sophomore Tyler Clark won the Men's Pro 1/2/3 race to go along with a second-place finish by senior Carson Beckett. Brevard College alumnus and current Assistant Coach Cypress Gorry finished third to give BC student-athletes and alumni a clean podium sweep.
