David Eichenberger (R-So., 3.92, exercise science and pre-med) paced Miami at the MAC Championship Saturday, finishing fourth overall as Miami's top finisher to earn First-Team All-MAC honors. He led the RedHawks to a tie for second place, their top finish since 2008, as he finished in a career-best time of 24:50.5. He improved 16 spots from his 20th-place finish at last year's MAC meet. Eichenberger was Miami's top finisher for the third time this year.

The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during the week's competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference's faculty athletic representatives.
