Men’s cross country repeat as MAC champions!
Congratulations to the EMU men’s cross country team for winning the MAC championship, their sixteenth! In honor of their 100th season the team sported what appear to be “fauxback” warm-up suits (nifty, though; see the photo at right). In the individual standings, Terefe Ejigu led the Eagles with a second-place finish, 14.4 seconds off the lead, which put him on the All-MAC first team, while Daryl Smith finished ninth and was named to the All-MAC second team. Nick Petro, Harry Dixon, and captain Austin Hendrix also finished in the top 20. Head coach John Goodridge repeated as MAC Coach of the Year, his seventh such honor.
The EMU women’s cross country team finished in fifth place, led by Victoria Voronko, who finished fourth and was named to the All-MAC first team, while Courtney Calka finished 13th and was named to the All-MAC second team.
