Central Michigan's Tecumseh Adams claimed the men's individual title in a time of 24:01.6. Adams is the eighth runner in CMU history to win the individual title and the first runner since Tristen Perlberg (2004) to bring home the win for the Chippewas. Last years champion Terefe Ejigu came in second place with a time of 24:16.0, while Akron's Brad Hough came in third with a time of 24:34.3.
Eastern Michigan scored a total of 68 points, while Central Michigan came in second with 78 points. Buffalo followed in third place (91 points), while Kent State followed in fourth place (107 points). Ohio (fifth, 127 points), Toledo (sixth, 128 points), Akron (seventh, 133 points), Miami (eighth, 173 points) and Bowling Green (ninth, 256 points) rounded out the field.
Eastern Michigan's John Goodridge was named the MAC Men's Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season and the seventh time in his career. The honor was selected by the leagues head coaches following the race.
The Eagles will look to continue their success in two weeks when they return to action on November 12 at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional meet in Toledo, Ohio. A top finish there would earn the teams a spot in the national meet later this month in Terre Haute, Ind.
