WILLIAMSTOWN -- Despite resting their top 10 runners, the Tufts University men's cross country team still had a fine eighth-place finish out of 43 teams at the 2009 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship Race run at Mount Greylock High School on Saturday afternoon.

Senior Matt Tirrell (Burlington, MA) was the first Jumbo to finish the 8,000-meter course, doing so in a 27:45.8 time for 29th place overall. The race was run by 296 contestants in total.

Jumbo freshman Dan Kirschner (Short Hills, NJ) made his presence known with a 36th place finish overall, second for Tufts, in a 27:53.7 time. Seniors Jason Hanrahan (Westport, CT) and Billy Hale (Menlo Park, CA) scored third and fourth for Tufts with 28:18.5 (57th overall) and 28:43.3 (81st) times, respectively. Freshman Brandon Severson (Calabasas, CA) completed the Jumbo scoring in 84th place (28:44.6).

Those five Tufts runners' finishes added up to a score of 282 for the Jumbos. Host Williams College won the ECAC title with an 85 score. Freshman Greg Redfield of Johnson & Wales University won the individual title by almost 30 seconds with his 26:11.2 time.

Next Saturday at Southern Maine, Tufts races for an NCAA Championship Race berth at the New England Regional.
