Bijan has a tremendous base from dedicated training. He showcased that by going stride-for-stride with top Div. I scholarship racers. His endurance and tenacity carried him to the finish, accelerating each mile, taking 7th place in the race. A magnificent performance.

Mazaheri was the first Div. III runner to cross the finish line at the Paul Short Invitational at Lehigh University last weekend, taking seventh place out of all four races, a field totalling nearly 1300 runners. Mazaheri’s performance earned him the NESCAC Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Week as well as the United States Track & Field Cross Country Couches Association National Athlete of the Week.

“I am proud of Mia and the two strong performances she put together this past weekend. It not only says a lot about Mia and her ability to step up but also our team, as we have an incredible amount of depth and determination. I am really proud of our entire group so far this season and look forward to the weeks ahead.”
