Seniors Brice Pavey and Laura Tarantino will probably have to expand their trophy cases following their season.

Tarantino was the individual race winner in the four regular season meets the Bulldogs competed in this fall. She was fifth at the GLVC championships to become the first Truman runner on the women’s side to earn All-GLVC honors and just missed a national championship spot when she finished 18th at the NCAA Midwest regional. She was named to the all-region team.

Behind Tarantino’s finishes at conference and regionals, the Truman women finished fifth in the conference team standings and 15th in regional team standings.

Pavey was first individually in the first two meets of the year and was third at the Division II showcase meet in Nashville, Tenn., hosted by Trevecca Nazarene.

The men earned an eighth place finish at the conference meet with senior Andrew Gordon leading the way for the Bulldogs in 39th position. At regionals, Truman was 18th with Pavey crossing the line first for Truman in 89th position.
