The Emory University men's cross country program has placed four former runners on the University Athletic Association's 30th Anniversary Team.
David Laub (1984-87), Jeff Calabrese (1996-99), Adam Carlson (1997-2000) and Phil Hagedorn (2000-03) are the Emory representatives among the 46 awardees.
The 30th Anniversary Team consists of each student-athlete who earned Individual Champion honors or accumulated five or more points in his career, with two points awarded for All-Association first team recognition and one point for second-team honors.
Laub holds the distinction of winning the first-ever UAA Championship back in 1987. An All-America performer as a junior and senior, he captured All-South Region honors all four years.
After garnering second-team recognition as a freshman, Calabrese raced to the first of his two first-team spots on the All-UAA Team as a sophomore in 1997 when he ranked seventh in the field. He went back-to-back the following season when he crossed the finish line in the No. 5 position.
Carlson was a four-time recipient of All-UAA acclaim, earning first-team kudos in 1999 after placing second at the league championships, and in 2000 when as a senior he raced to first-place honors. His initial two years as a collegian saw him bring home second-team recognition.
As a sophomore and junior, Hagedorn claimed first-team honors after posting sixth- and third-place performances at the UAA Championships. During his freshman and senior seasons, he landed positions on the second team. His final Emory cross country race saw him earn All-America status after finishing 13th at the NCAA D-III Championships.
