FARMVILLE, Va. -- In the second race of the ODAC Championships, junior Chris Hollingsworth (Alexandria, Va./West Potomac) and senior Ryan Purrington (Gloucester, Va./Gloucester) led Randolph on the men's side.

The two have battled it out for the top spot in every race and combine to hold the top 17 best times in program history.

While only Hollingsworth added his name to that top 17 today with his 29:37.90 finish, Purrington was in close pursuit at 30:19.70.

They finished 37th and 48th, respectively.

Purrington has all three program records, including a 27:15 time in 2012 in this distance, 8K.

Bridgewater took the team title with 50 points. Guilford, who had three of the top four, couldn't find good results from its remaining runners and finished fifth.

Randolph had 283 points and placed 11th.
