Men race to GLVC title,
Eagles place six in top 10


RENSSELAIR, Ind.The University of Southern Indiana men's cross country team dominated the field Saturday to take home its second GLVC Championship in three years and 12th in the program's history.

The Screaming Eagles placed six runners in the top 10 and finished with 26 points, 37 points better than second-place Lewis University.

Rey Alvarez

Junior Rey Alvarez (Danville, Illinois) finished second with an 8k time of 24 minutes, 34.74 seconds, while senior Jesse Davis (Bloomington, Indiana) and sophomore Paul Jellema (Dyer, Indiana) were fourth and fifth, respectively. Davis finished the 8k course in 24 minutes, 47.27 seconds, while Jellema crossed the finish line in 25 minutes, 0.05 seconds.

Tim Sirbek

Freshman Tim Sirbek (Hammond, Indiana) finished sixth and earned GLVC Freshman of the Year honors, while seniors Rob Garwood (Columbus, Indiana) and David Tyler (Evansville, Indiana) finished ninth and 10th, respectively.

All of USI's top six finishers earned All-GLVC honors, tying the 1986 mark for the most league honors the men's squad has ever garnered in a single season.

Mike Hillyard

The Eagles score on Saturday was good enough to defeat the combined efforts of the entire GLVC field. The performance also helped USI Head Coach Mike Hillyard earn GLVC Coach of the Year honors for the fifth time (two men's honors and three women's honors) in his career.

USI will gear up for the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Regional Championships, which will be held November 5 in Big Rapids, Michigan. The Great Lakes Region will send its top four teams to the NCAA II Championships November 19 in Pomona, California.
