Freshman Tim Sirbek (Hammond, Indiana) also earned a pair of All-GLVC honors, one the DMR and the other for his second-place finish in the 5,000 meters.

Along with Sirbek and Jellema, freshmen Brandon Jones (Ft.

The squad finished the DMR with an NCAA II provisional qualifying time of 10 minutes, 12.78 seconds.
