He won Spiked Shoe today, beating Germano.
Syracuse is looking strong again this year.
The Syracuse men placed seven runners in the top-14, including the meet's individual champion Iliass Aouani, who was competing in his Syracuse debut, to highlight the Harry Groves Spiked Shoe Invitational for the Orange.
In addition to the men's win, the women's team placed third, with freshman Madeleine Davison reaching the podium with a third place finish overall.
Behind Aouani, who crossed the line in 26:17.1, Philo Germano (26:24.5) and Joel Hubbard (26:25.3) finished in second and third respectively. Kevin James (6th.26:38.3) and TJ Hornberger (7th/26:40.9) rounded out the scoring, while Shawn Wilson and Griff Molino finished ninth and 14th respectively to round out Syracuse's top-seven.
The Orange's 19 points claimed the meet by a wide margin over second place Cornell (67). Georgetown (90), Lehigh (125), Penn State (146), St. Joseph's (157), Rutgers (175), Princeton (211) and Grove City (273) made up the team scores for the men.
Spiked Shoe is 5.2 miles. The paces next to the times are correct. Winning time would be like 25 low if actually 5 miles. I believe it is a tough course as well. Never ran it though.

I know it's early in the season, but those times are really slow. Tough course?
