ECAC Men's Cross Country Runners of the Week
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Lehigh senior Tyler Mueller was selected as the Corvias ECAC Division I Men's Cross Country Co-Runner of the Week on Wednesday for his performance at the Paul Short Run over the weekend.
Mueller ran a personal-best 23:58 to place sixth overall in a strong field at the Paul Short Run, which is held on Lehigh's Goodman Campus. He topped his 8K previous best, which came at last year's Paul Short run, by more than 30 seconds. Mueller was the highest Lehigh finisher in the race since 1976, and was first among Patriot League competitors.
Mueller was named the Patriot League M-F Athletic Male Runner of the Week on Monday for his performance. He is the third Patriot Leaguer named Corvias ECAC Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week this season, joining Boston University's Alec Olson (Sept. 24) and Navy's Steve Schroeder (Sept. 17). Navy's Annie-Norah Beveridge (Sept. 17) and Lehigh's Ingrid Simon (Sept. 24) have won the award in women's cross country.
