WESTWOOD, Mass.—Babson College men's cross country junior Matthew Dynan (Reading, Mass.) was honored as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Runner of the Week on Tuesday afternoon.
Dynan edged teammate John Decker (Parkland, Fla.) by five seconds to finish first overall with a time of 15:50 in the Beavers' season-opening 5k meet at Wheaton on Friday. He won the event for the third consecutive season and trimmed 40 seconds off of last year's winning time to help the Green and White post a 19-42 victory over the Lyons.
Babson returns to action on September 16 at the UMass Dartmouth Invitational. The women's race begins at 10:30 and will be followed by the men's race at 11:15 a.m.
