In his first race since the Boston Marathon, Brian Harvey shook off the marathon dust and led the men’s team with a runner-up place in 24:19, seven seconds behind Team Run’s Jeffrey Vega. The margin of seven was also the difference in the team scoring with the men edging Team Run by a narrow margin of seven seconds. Eric Ashe trailed in 4th place (24:54), followed by Brad Mish (11th, 25:28), Sean Highland (21st, 25:54) and Nils Schallner (25th, 26:04) to close out the team scoring for the open men. Spring marathon training seems to be a good formula for shorter summer races with all five of the top B.A.A. scorers coming off solid Boston Marathon performances.
