And boom goes the dynamite! -- another Eastern cross country season is off and running. For the first meet of the year, the men traveled to Fitchburg, Mass. for the Jim Sheehan Memorial Invitational Sept. 10. The team finished in second place out of four. Nick Miller had an excellent start to the season with a third place finish. Transfer Conor Hackett followed in fourth. Rounding out runners in the top ten for Eastern were Bryan Jorge, Brad Beausoleil, and first-year Brody Secore.
The men are still hungry for more though as they are happy with a second place finish they know they have not scratched the surface yet. They are looking forward to a productive cross country season that will carrry over into successful indoor and outdoor track seasons..
