  • Alistair the Avenger

    Origin: Greek

    Meaning: Variant of Alexander: Defender of men; ruler. Also means avenger.

    Any guesses on why he is running so well this indoors after losing two straight NCAA cross titles to CU runners (though he was out a majority of the 03 season)! I would certainly say that he has put to rest and avenged those losses, and certainly defends the pride of Arkansas every time he steps on the starting line.

    Some guys aren't as good over cross country as they are on the track.
