WATERFORD, Conn. -- The Tufts University Men's Cross Country team

title after placing five runners in the top ten finishers. Bowdoin
took second with Amherst, Trinity, and Wesleyan sealing the top
five. Trinity's Hunter Norte won the race in 26:13.
The top Tufts finisher was freshman Nick Welch (Seattle, WA),
who crossed the finish line in 26 minutes, 54 seconds. That was good
for 20th place in a field of 126 runners. Tufts senior co-captain
Josh Kennedy (Guilford, CT), still rounding into form after an
injury, finished two spots behind Welch with a time of 26:56.
Senior Justin Chung (Manchester, CT) earned 41st with a time
