CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Jason Saretsky, The William W. "Bill" McCurdy Director of Track and Field/Cross Country, has been named the Ivy League Men's Cross-Country Co-Coach of the Year, as voted by the other Ivy League cross country coaches and announced Tuesday by the Ivy League. 

This is the first time Saretsky has won the award since it was introduced in 2014. Saretsky led the Crimson to its best finish since 1976, as the men's team placed second at Ivy Heps this past Saturday. 

Five student-athletes garnered All-Ivy honors, including Kieran Tuntivate, who won the men's individual Heps championship. Also, with All-Ivy finishes on the men's side was Hugo Milner, who finished in third with a time of 24:32.3, and Will Battershill, who finished in 12th with a time of 24:56.3. Milner earned All-Ivy first team honors while Battershill earned second team honors. It was the first time since 1978 the Crimson had multiple All-Ivy finishers.

On the women's side, Lisa Tertsch (20:50.2) and Abbe Goldstein (21:03.4) earned All-Ivy first team honors, finishing in third and sixth, respectively. This is the only the second time since 1985 the Crimson has had multiple All-Ivy first team finishers.
