His best finishes include a fourth-place finish at the Hawkeye Invitational on September 2, a 14th-place finish at the Murray Keatinge Invitational on October 1, and leading the team with a 20th-place finish at the Big Ten Championships on October 30.

Marchand has competed in all four Iowa meets this season and her best finishes were a sixth-place finish at the Hawkeye Invitational and a 22nd-place finish at the Big Ten Championships.

Both honorees will compete next when Iowa hosts the Midwest Regional Championships on November 12 at Ashton Cross Country Course.
