FALLER'S WIN AT CODFISH BOWL EARNS HIM NESCAC PERFORMER OF THE WEEK HONORS

MEDFORD -- Junior Jesse Faller (Burlington, MA) of the Tufts University men's cross country team is this week's New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Performer of the Week after he won the 41st Annual Codfish Bowl at Franklin Park in Boston on Saturday (Sept. 27).

Faller defeated a field of 155 runners from Northeast Division II and III college teams and other amateurs. His time of 25:42 over the eight-kilometer course was three seconds in front of Nicholas Koiyet from New York Institute of Technology for the victory. The win was the first of Faller's collegiate racing career.

Faller's first-place effort led Tufts to a second-place team finish out of 17 squads. The Jumbos were a last-minute addition to run at the 41st Annual Codfish Bowl after their originally scheduled meet at the Connecticut College Invitational was canceled due to rain.
