Men's Cross Country - Sat, Dec. 20, 2014

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. - The men's cross country team has added a runner to its upcoming signing class.


Jacob Giamarco, from Alexander High School in Douglasville, Ga., is a top runner in his class. The talented runner ran the 5K in 16:43 (Region), 16:31 (Douglas Co.), 16:44 (Asics) and 17:33 (State) will be counted on to score and help lead the Skyhawks early in his collegiate career. 


"Jacob was highly recommended by several people who know him well," Head Men's Cross Country Coach Michael Caldwell said. "He is a tremendous runner but an even better Christian and person. Point University is very fortunate to have Jacob coming our way."


Jacob ran at one of the top programs south of I-20 and his head coach at Alexander, Brian Robinson believes the young runner will continue to develop in the coming years.


"Jacob is probably the most improved runner I've coached, Robinson said. "He really improved over the last year. He is a hard worker and a coaches dream."
