  In the boys varsity race, Senior Eric Lawson placed 4th overall followed by Tyler Tesch 5th and Kris Lacer 6th.  Tyler set a personal best on his birthday race.  According to the statistics, the boys team should have lost to Riverside even with missing varsity runner Daniel Weekes.  The boys proved that rankings and statistics don't always matter when you have the heart and determination to win.  Teddy Buckner placed 13th and was the 4th Mav runner in followed by Sawyer Willingham in 14th place and Graham Harris in 16th place.  Michael Moore rounded out the varsity team in 48th place.  Sawyer, Graham, and Michael all ran personal bests in their race.  In the JV boys race Tyler Pommerenke placed 3rd overall with Jeff Sinkele in 5th place.  Tyler and Jeff's times were fast enough to bump them into the varsity division.  Both boys race personal bests today along with fellow JV teammates JD Donoso, Daniel Schlepphorst, Josh LeBrun, Joey Fuson, Jeff Wood, Chris Wrobel, Andy Taylor, Jonathan Panning, Robert Fuson, and Chase Small.  Chase had the largest time improvement on the team, knocking almost 3 minutes off his 5k time!  The JV boys placed 3rd as a team.  Way to go, MAVS!!
