Loras flexed their home-course muscles by earning the top nine spots, starting with Sam Whan. Whan has regularly led the Duhawks to the finish line in 2013.

The full Duhawk roster competed in the home event – which doubles as the de facto final regular season event of the year. The team won't take the course again until November when they run at the Iowa Conference Championship at Central College in Pella, Iowa on the 2nd. The gun goes off at 11:00 am.


This year's Central Region title is hosted by St. Olaf on November 16.
