Championship Results

WATERFORD, Conn. -- The Tufts University Men's Cross Country team competed at the NESCAC Championships this past weekend, placing 8th among eleven teams.

Overcoming the unyielding wind and rain, Williams College earned the 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 of 27 minutes, 19 seconds. Five spots down Dave Sorensen (Dover, MA) ran a 27:33 for 46th, and rounding out the top five Jumbo finishers was senior Chad Uy (Syosset, NY/Syosset) in 53rd place with a time of 27:39.
