CARBONDALE, Ill.- The University of Memphis Men's Cross Country team placed fourth at the Saluki Invitational Saturday.

The Tigers accumulated 89 points. Senior Adam Didyk placed third in the 8K race with a time of 25:34.33. That was the highest finish for any Tiger this fall. Sophomore Szabi Karadi also finished in the top ten with a time of 26:03.37 which was good enough for eighth place. Senior Kym Morgan finished 13th with a time of 26:15.56. Other Tiger runners were Istvan Kerekjarto (27:51.57) and Imran Mahmood (28:43.49).

Southern Illinois (38) edged out the University of Arkansas-Little Rock (45) by seven points to earn the title. Indiana State (67) and Bradley (129), finished third and fifth, respectively. Joe Byrne of Southern Illinois won the race with a time of 25:17.46. Finishing second was Dmitry Shokur of UALR with a time of 25:30.98.

Despite only finishing fourth, the Tigers take a lot of positives away from the race. Competing without top runner Mate Nemeth, they managed to place three runners in the top-15. Didyk's performance was the best do far of his career with a personal best time in the 8K, while Sophomore Szabi Karadi showed a great deal of improvement from the Iona Meet of Champions placing eighth while shaving over a minute off of his previous 8K time.

The Tigers will compete next at the Arkansas Chilli Pepper Invitational next weekend on Oct. 18.
