On the men's side, Carson Bix showed well and continued to make his mark on the ECC record books. He placed 15th in the 1500m race with a mark of 14:41.63, which also placed him as the sixth all-time ECC performer. He's also the current No. 3 performer on the CCCAA list this season.

In the other 5 races, Matt Arruda ran 15:44,94 (21st ), Caleb Ko 15:58.30 (33rd), Brandon Martin 16:56.17 (37th), and John Harvey 17:35.40 all participated.
