BETHLEHEM, Pa.-- Junior Erik van Ingen made the most of his first race of the cross country season, finishing 17th at the Lehigh/Paul Short Run on Friday afternoon. The Binghamton men placed 11th out of 42 teams in the Gold Race while the women were sixth out of 39 teams in the Brown Race.

In a field of 386 runners, van Ingen covered the 8,000-meter course in a time of 24:03. In the process, he recorded the highest finish ever by a Binghamton runner at the Paul Short Run. Last season, van Ingen placed a then program-best 42nd (out of 298 runners).

Graduate student Chris Gaube placed 50th overall (24:35), bettering his 2008 finish by 42 places. Freshman Jeff Martinez was 103rd (24:59), junior Adam Quinn was 116th (25:04) and junior Casey Quaglia was 134th (25:11).

The 11th-place finish by the men's team is the best in Binghamton program history. In the 2008 meet, the Bearcats were 20th out of 45 squads.

On the women's side, Binghamton freshman Rachel Miura continues to be the Bearcats' top racer. At Lehigh, she placed 31st out of 338 runners in the Brown Race. She covered the 6,000-meter course in a time of 22:30.

Junior Kim Law was 50th (22:55), junior Alicia Finger was 59th (23:02), junior Paulina Nunez was 65th (23:08) and senior Terry Powell was 93rd (23:29).
