The guys team also received honors for their efforts. Nick Abdo and Brett Russell earned 2nd team ECIC Allstar recongnition.
The pack of runners that included Nathan Myers, Kurt Uschold, Zack Peterman, Elliott Emyle and Luke Waterman raced well. A strong and bright future is in store for next year as the boys’ team has six of their top seven runners returning next year.
