On the men's side, Drew LeFrank opened his first race of the season covering the 8km race in a time of 28:15 and was first among his teammates. Training partner and first year student-athlete Owen Bachelor was close behind in a time of 29:13. This was the first race wearing the maroon and white for Bachelor. Aaron MacDonald rounded out the top three Huskies across the finish line finishing in a time of 30:14.
