Meet Recap

Runner of the Meet - Tom Anderson '10 & Sophie Galleher '10

While only the 2nd meet of the season, the teams split up into varsity and Sub-varsity for this meet, due to the size of the field and the restrictions placed upon it. The men ran their entire first year class in the sub-varsity section, along with those who were not running the 7 person varsity field. In what should prove to be a great foundation for the future, as well as showing quite a bit of promise for things to come down the road this season, the first year guys dominated the sub-varsity race as Daniel Murner led the team with his 5th place showing, and the first scoring runner of the race. Following close behind in 6th and 7th were Jimmy Swanson and William Bell, and after skipping a place, Carlyle Eubank and Eric Holaday came in at 9th and 10th to close out the scoring with a meager 17 points. John Babbott in 12th, and Tom Anderson who had a phenomenal race to grab 19th rounded out the Top 7. Rom Cabeza and Will Fairhurst broke into the Top 30, with the runs, while Steve Grigelevich, Eric Glustrom and Kit Callahan all raced under 29 minutes, with Sam Hayman just missing the mark. Steve Stewart, known more for his track prowess nearly broke 30 minutes for the day. In the men's varsity race, the strength of the team was hindered a bit by illness as harrison Lakehomer did not race and Mike Harbus was obviously still feeling the effects of his week long battle with a cold, but on the bright side, Tomas Morrissey returned to racing for the first time since last winter and stepped in as the front runner, finishing 13th overall. Peter Foote would knock of 30 seconds from his best 5 mile time ever to finish 22nd, and was the team's #2 runner. Nate Freese and Cooper Knowlton finished in 33rd and 34th respectively, with Rich Wilson grabbing the final scoring spot in 48th to lead the team to a 4th place finish.

The women dominated their race, and won by over 30 points and turned back #8 ranked Colby in the process. Shauneen Garrahan led the race for the majority before being passed by a strong UMass Lowell runner in the last 800, but still finished under 18 minutes for the 5k course. Kim Partee ran a solid race to finish 3rd overall, while Elise Tropiano was in a tight battle for the entire race with Colby's Top 2 runners and would wind up finishing 6th overall with her best 5k XC time. Heather Wilson finished 9th, with Katie Moravec grabbing a 12th place finish to secure the victory. Meg Ray nearly broke 19 minutes as she placed 16th, and Laura Mortimer rounded out the Varsity 7 with her 23rd place finish - capping a very strong team run where all 7 finished in the Top 25. In the sub varsity race, despite feeling the effects of the cold that has been hampering the teams, Sophia Galleher went out hard form the gun and led for the entire race as she grabbed her first college victory, nearly running faster then ever before. As convincing as the varsity win was, the sub-varsity crew would take it one step further as Sophie, Caitlin Murphy, Zandra Walton, Rachel Cameron and Liz Dalton (throwing a big kick in to ensure the sweep) swept the top 5 places in earning a perfect score of 15. Cate Knuff grabbed a Top 20 spot, while Nicole Green showed a big kick in the end as she had a great race to finish 35th, and Shaylon Stolk nearly broke 23 minutes. The teams will race together next weekend at Tufts, as they race their first 6k of the season.
