Men’s Cross Country
Wallace State’s men’s cross country is back and has already earned championship status! The Lions won the 2018 Alabama Community College Conference championship.
Wallace State, coached by Stan Narewski and assistant Tony Crider, had the top four finishers and five of the top eight at the 2018 conference meet, earning the men’s program a sixth conference championship.
Freshman Tanner King was named the 2018 ACCC Runner of the Year after finishing the conference 8K with a 26:24. King had two first-place finishes for Wallace State throughout the season.
Eli Wilhite was the ACCC meet individual runner-up, finishing with a 26:35. Wilhite registered four first-place finishes for the Lions throughout the fall.
Victor Bravo finished third overall for the Lions and Hamza Abusammour came in fourth. Alex Leary finished sixth.
Jacob Guthrie, Brennan Wink, Drake Patton, Kolter Lindsay, Josh Jenkins and Cole Nabors rounded out the 2018 roster.
The men completed their first season in Fall 2017 after being reintroduced to the athletics slate, finishing ACCC runner-up in the inaugural season under Narewski.
Narewski returned to Hanceville after leading Wallace State cross country to multiple conference championships before the program was discontinued in June 2008.
During Narewksi’s first stint at Wallace State, men’s cross country teams won five conference championships, while the women won a pair. Wallace State also won a men’s track and field NJCAA Division II national title in 1997 under Narewski – one of seven national championships for the college.
Upon leaving Wallace State, Narewski, 70, took on the role of Director of Planned and Major Gifts at the University of West Alabama, where he is a member of the college’s athletics Hall of Fame.
Narewski has more than 30 years of coaching experience and was named a three-time NJCAA Coach of the Year during his previous time at Wallace State. He was also inducted into the NJCAA Track Hall of Fame. Before his initial tenure at Wallace State, Narewski had coaching stops at Auburn, Kansas, Furman, Murray State, Clemson and Florida.
