Last Time Out
Ohio State claimed an unofficial victory at the 8k Auto Owners Spartan Invitational in East Lansing, Mich., Sept. 14.
Although the meet was not scored and therefore no winner declared, the Buckeyes cumulative placements in the standings would have given the team a victory under normal circumstances. Host Michigan State was the unofficial runner-up.
Senior Donny Roys was the top runner of the day for the Scarlet and Gray. Competing in his first meet of the season, the Medina, Ohio, native crossed the finish line in a fifth-place time of 25:00. Joining Roys in the Top 10 was freshman Nick Pupino, who placed seventh in 25:02.
