Race Results

Jesse Faller won his second career race for Tufts
 

WATERFORD, Conn. -- Tufts senior Jesse Faller (Burlington, MA) edged Division 2 Southern Connecticut's Joseph Poulsen at the finish line to win the 2009 Connecticut College Men's Cross Country Invitational at Harkness Park on Saturday.

Faller's time of 25:17 was three seconds faster than Poulsen's and led the Jumbos to a first-place finish at the meet. The win was the second of Faller's career, including the Codfish Bowl last fall on this weekend.

With three runners scoring in the top 10, Tufts totaled 48 points to out-distance second-place Bowdoin College (64). Brandeis was third with a 111 score. Sixteen teams were in attendance overall at the eight-kilometer race.

Senior captain Nick Welch (Seattle, WA) was second for Tufts and fifth overall with a 25:34 time. Jumbo junior Jeff Ragazzini (Wilton, CT) was ninth with a 25:41 race.

Two freshman runners also aided the Tufts cause with excellent performances among the field of 214 runners. Matt Rand (Cape Elizabeth, ME) and Kyle Marks (Carmel, IN) crossed the finish line back-to-back in 25:56 (15th) and 26:01 (16th), respectively. Though he didn't score, sophomore Conor Rose (Irvine, CA) was also in the top 20 at 26:04.

Coach Ethan Barron's Jumbos are idle next week.
