Jeremy Van Ek ’96
Team “12 Cents,” consisting of 12 alumni of the Centurian Fraternity, won the Masters division of Ragnar Michigan on September 25. Ragnar Michigan is a 200-mile running relay race from Muskegon to Traverse City. Each of the 12 team members runs three legs varying from three to nine miles each. The team members were: Jeff Brown ’96, Erik Eldred ’96, Jeremy Van Ek ’96, Marcus Wasilevich ’96, Lloyd Dunlap ’98, Peter Martin ’98, Greg Folkert ’97, Brian Dykhuis ’98, John Delcalzo ’98, Mark Tenhor ’99, Seth Bruggers ’99 and Eric Zondervan ’00. The team had a great time running through wind, rain, and sun over 28 hours and five minutes. That time was good enough to win the Masters division (all runners over 40) and placed eighth overall out of 135 teams. This is the fourth year that the team has competed and third time winning the Masters division (with some variation in team members over the years).
