Did You Notice?
• Alabama runners Victor Kiprop and Hillary Cheruiyot swept the SEC Cross Country Athletes of the Week awards. In his UA debut, Kiprop won the North Alabama Showcase with a time of 23:20.85 over the 8-kilometer course to be named the SEC Runner of the Week. In his first race for the Crimson Tide as well, Cheruiyot finished third in 23:44.97, trailing only Kiprop and Eliud Kipsang, to be named the SEC Freshman of the Week.
• Tuesday was also moving day for the Crimson Tide cross country teams. The women moved up to No. 5 nationally, while the men went from outside the top 30 last week to No. 15. It's the highest ranking in program history for the UA women, and the men’s first top-25 ranking since the fourth week of the 2018 season.
• The SEC announced it won't hold a traditional media day for basketball this fall. Instead, each men's and women's team will make an appearance on one of the SEC Network Shows, plus will schedule a Zoom media session sometime between October 18 and November 5.

Congratulations to former Crimson Tide player Morgan McCullough, who helped the Kansas City Monarchs sweep Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks to win the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball championship. The Monarchs sat out the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
