Men's Cross Country - Aaron Easker, Junior, Eland, Wis./Wittenberg-Birnamwood

Easker led the Blugolds to a fourth place finish out of 25 teams at UW-La Crosse’s Jim Drews Invitational on Saturday. Despite having his shoe partially dislodged from the heel of his foot at the one and a half mile mark and finally loosing it completely at the four-mile mark, Easker was able to move up throughout the race and finished the 8,000-meter course with a time of 25:42.6. He was the fourth collegiate finisher, second from Division III and the top WIAC finisher in the field.
