BOSTON -- Members of the Tufts University men's cross country team ran in two races at the 20th Annual Mayor's Cup, sponsored by the Boston Athletic Association on Sunday at Franklin Park.

In an open field, the Jumbos ran in the co-ed five-kilometer race on Sunday. They finished as the men's runner-up out of 20 teams. Senior Matt Tirrell (Burlington, MA) was sixth out of 350 runners in the 5K with a 16:47 finish. Classmates Jason Hanrahan (Westport, CT) and Billy Hale (Menlo Park, CA) were also in the top 15 at 17:17 (12th) and 17:30 (14th), respectively. Freshman Drew Fuchs (Brimfield, MA) was 20th in a 17:40 time. The fifth Tufts scorer was sophomore Jeff Prescott (Wilton, CT), who was 44th in 18:25.

The Jumbos also ran as a team in the eight-kilometer men's championship, which was also an open field. Tufts and Dartmouth were the only two colleges in the 11-team field. Tufts finished 11th.

Freshman Andrew Haskell (Westborough, MA) was the top Tufts finisher in the race. He was 98th, covering the 8K course in 27:42. Jumbo classmate Sam Haney (Essex, CT) was close behind in a 27:43 time for 100th place. Freshman Luke Maher (Patterson, NY) crossed the finish line 104th (27:54). The final two Tufts scorers were junior Corey Melnick (Waltham, VT) and freshman Adam Brosh (Agoura Hills, CA), whose times were 28:18 and 28:53, respectively.

The championship season begins for Coach Ethan Barron's team next Sunday when Trinity College hosts the New England Small College Athletic Conference race.
