METRO ROUNDUP: Mascari takes first to lead ISU to victory at Evansville

EVANSVILLE — Sophomore John Mascari may have been running in temperatures topping the 90 degree mark, but he was calm and kept his cool in the heat. Mascari bided his time in the pack before unleashing a fantastic kick to win the Evansville Mid-American Opener. The Terre Haute native’s winning time was 18:25.93.

“Coach wanted us to run together as a team for about the first half of the race today, after that we got in there and the guys ran well,” Mascari said. “A Louisville kid made a hard move with about 1,000 meters to go and I was able to reel him in by finish, it was a great day.”

Next up for the Sycamores will be the Sycamore Invitational on Sept. 14.

The ISU women placed second as Louisville prevailed.

Junior Nicole Lucas placed fifth to lead the Sycamores with a time of 15:19.48.
