WILIAMSTOWN -- With eight runners overall placing among the top 15, the Tufts University men's cross country team handily won the eight-kilometer race at Williams College's Plansky Invitational on Saturday. Tufts' score of 26 was 29 better than second-place RPI at 55.

Senior Jesse Faller (Burlington, MA) was the first Jumbo to cross the finish line in third place overall with a 26:19 time. He finished behind only Williams College alumni Macklin Chaffee and Neal Holtschulte in the race, whose finishes were not counted in the team standings. The race also included runners from Connecticut College, Assumption, Manhattanville, RPI, and Williams.

Tufts junior Chris Brunnquell (Harrington Park, NJ) took seventh place overall with a 26:53 time. Also in the top 10 for the Jumbos was freshman Kyle Marks (Carmel, IN) at 27:06 for 10th. Six Tufts runners placed 10th through 15th in a row. The final two scoring spots were taken by senior Ryan Lena (Orono, ME) with a 27:08 time for 11th and sophomore Connor Rose (Irvine, CA) in 12th place (27:09).

The Jumbos will run at Franklin Park in Boston next Sunday in the Mayor's Cup, the final race before the championship season begins.
