Grayson County native Corbin Harris wins NCCAA National Championship

Campbellsville University senior Corbin Harris won the 5000m NCCAA National Championship last month.

Harris, a 2015 GCHS graduate, became the second runner in Campbellsville indoor track history to become a national champion. He won the race with a time of 15:25.48 defeating the second place finisher by more than 17 seconds.

Also at the meet, which was held at Cedarville University, Harris finished in 3rd place in the 3000m with a time 8:58.19.

The honors didn’t stop there as Harris, along with teammate and fellow Grayson County alum Bret Crawford, was named to the All-Academic team which honors athletes who have a GPA between 3.0-4.0.

As a team, the Tigers finished in fourth place at the meet. In addition, with the help of Harris and Crawford, Campbellsville was honored as the 2018 NAIA U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Scholar-Team.
