Freshmen Jeffry Escalante, Ty Evans, and Michael Bouselli, and Junior Omar Simmons rounded out our top seven scorers finishing 19th, 22nd, 37th, and 42nd respectively. Colin Parker, Sean Carey and DJ Motisko also turned in strong performances. In only his second race of the season, sophomore Chas Bryant finished 20th overall, but was ineligible for team scoring due to conference rules regarding adding to our rosters after specified dates. Chas was eligible to compete for individual awards.
