Meet Recap

Runner of the Meet - Cooper Knowlton '07 and Nicole Anderson '09

The teams traveled to Franklin park in Boston - site of the World Cross Country Championships in 1991 - to take on the competition at the All New England Championships. The meet has schools from all three divisions - I, II and III - and while some of the schools in the region choose to not run, it is still an outstanding meet that provides great competition, and a field that is deeper than any other race that we will see this season. The field is so large, that the races are split into varsity and JV, and both races have nearly 300 finishers in each. The women's JV race was first on the day, and with the goal coming into the race being to try and win their race, the mission was accomplished. Laura Mortimer led the way as she placed 5th overall with a great run of 19:15 - in the next 15 seconds, the scoring 5 would all come in as Nicole Anderson was 9th in 19:18 (her first race since the Amherst Invite a great indicator for the upcoming races), Caitlin Murphy in 12th in 19:22, Rachel Cameron just after her in 19:23 and Zandra closing out the scoring at 19:30. Liz Dalton got under 20 minutes, and Nicole Green had her best race of the season, as she gets closer to breaking the 20 minute barrier, while Cate KNuff was just behind her and Shaylon Stolk had her best race of the year. The tone was set for the women's varsity, and their goal coming in was to finish in the Top 3 (would better our best finish ever) and to be the first DIII team. When the dust was settled, they accomplished both, as they earned the runner-up plaque - a mere 9 points away from the win, and handily defeated the other DIII Teams. Shauneen Garrahan led the team with her 4th place finish (17:34 - XC PR), using a big kick in the last 20 meters to move in front of three other runners. Kim Partee dipped under 18 minutes for the first time in XC as she place 12th in 17:56. Heather Wilson grabbed 21st, as she ran 18:15, while Sophie Galleher continues to impress in her first year as she ran 18:37 to finish 46th, with Elise Tropiano rounding out the scoring a few seconds back, in 18:43. Meg Ray dipped under 19 minutes for the first time (18:58) while katie Moravec finished in 19:15. The women will run together in 2 weeks at Little Three's.

The men's results were kind of a mixed bag - we had some great races on the day, and some that were not up to the level that we are capable of, but even those with off races, were still able to post some fast times which was encouraging. Despite not having our best team race, we were able to finish 17th overall, and finish 5th amongst DIII teams - with a mere 13 points separating Wesleyan, Williams, MIT and us. Harrison Lakehomer finished 35th overall, and ran to his fastest time ever, of 25:28 (7th DIII runner). Cooper Knowlton had a phenomenal race as well, as he not only got under the 26 minute barrier, but also stepped up big when the team needed it most, as he jumped from our 5th scorer all the way to our #2 guy. First year Daniel Murner, getting his first big race experience, dipped under 26 minutes while Tomas Morrissey came in at 26:05. Nate Freese, followed an off rae at Tufts with a big ON race as he raced to a 26:08 time and finished as the final scorer for the team. Mike Harbus ran a 26:14, and Peter Foote rounded out the varsity 7 with his 26:35. In the JV race, the guys finished 7th overall, and as the 2nd DIII team - behind only Williams - and posted some great times, with many of the guys running to big PR's on the day. First year Eric Holaday led the team with his 22nd place finish, and ran 26:25. A mere 16 seconds separated Eric from our 6th runner, as John Babbott26:32, a trio of first years with great races - Williams Bell 26:34, Tommy Anderson 26:36 and Jimmy Swanson 26:40 - and Robert Boley 26:41 all finished in the top 50 of the race. Rom Cabeza raced to a new XC PR of 27:27, as did first year runners Stephen Grigelevich and Kit Callahan, while another first year, Ben Klein made his season debut and just missed breaking 30 minutes. The teams will race together in 2 weeks at the Little Three Championships at home, in what might be one the most competitive Little Three's in recent memory as Williams, Wesleyan and Amherst are all very strong this season, and should provide a lot of excitement.
