Meet Recap

Runner of the Meet - Carlyle Eubank'10 & Katie Moravec'07

While sitting the top runners from each squad (as they rested for Districts), the teams hoped to showcase their depth at the ECAC Championships hosted by Williams College. The men came away with a 3rd place finish, while the women came away with a convincing victory as they placed all 5 scorers in the Top 12. The men were paced by first year Carlyle Eubank as he got out hard and raced in the front pack of runners throughout the entire race. Not only did he finish 8th - earning ALL ECAC honors, but looked to put all the pieces together with his racing and could have a big impact with the team next week. Robert Boley also grabbed All-ECAC honors, as he finished 13th over all (Top 15 earned the conference accolades) with another solid race, and just behind him, but missing All-ECAC by one place was first year Eric Holaday who had a great a race despite nursing a groin injury all week. John Babbot finished of his Amherst XC career with a solid 25th place finish, and Peter Foote closed out he scoring with his 64th place run. First years Williams Bell and Tom Anderson capped strong first year campaigns with solid runs,and should be part of a great nucleus for next year's success.

The women had a dominating performance on Saturday in the 6k race, and continued to rack up the Championship honors. After having won the JV Race at the All New England Championships - an indication of depth and strength - they raced with the focus and purpose of capitalizing on that depth in this race. Sitting out those runners who had established themselves as the set varsity, the women racing knew that they were in for a tough race with a very strong Williams "second" squad, and the regular varsity team from Coast Guard. Junior Katie Moravec got hard from the gun and established herself in the front, never straying farther then 4th place and certainly ran her best race of the season thus far, as she finished 2nd overall, and will bring that confidence with her next week. First year Rachel Cameron, despite nursing a leg injury towards the end of the week, came away from the race with her best run of the season and added a huge boost to the team with her 5th place performance. Junior Laura Mortimer had a great race, as she went out with the leaders from the gun and held on well to finish 8th overall. Sophomores Caitlin McDermott-Murphy and Nicole Anderson would close out the scoring with some great running, as both moved up well through the 2nd half of the race to finish 10th and 12th respectively. Zandra Walton would up 33rd, while Nicole Green capped a great first year of XC racing with a big race. Both teams will head to Veterans Park Golf Course on Saturday to compete for the chance to qualify for the the NCAA's
