Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College men’s cross-country program, paced by senior co-captain Ace McAlister (Great Barrington, Mass.), completed the 2019 NESCAC Cross Country Championships hosted by Williams College on Saturday afternoon. McAlister’s 24th place finish highlighted the result, which saw the Bantams place two spots higher than 2018.
Running at Mount Greylock Regional School in front of a large crowd, host school Williams dominated the course, placing seven inside the top 12 and earning the 2019 crown. Amherst, Middlebury, and Colby rounded out the top four, with both Bates and Connecticut College finishing just ahead of Trinity.
The Bantams saw excellent conditions — also unlike 2018 — and was able to capitalize, seeing four runners inside the top 50. Senior co-captain Timothy Bogolomov (Lynn. Mass.) shaved a minute off of last year’s performance, and completed the course in 27th with a time of 26:33. McAlister’s 24th place finish saw a time of 26:31, and sophomores Henry Potter (Lake Oswego, Oregon) and Tim Lautenbach (Weston, Conn.) completed the course in 32nd (26:46) and 40th (26:57), respectively.
The Bantams will take next weekend off before traveling to Bowdoin on November 16 for the Division III New England Regional.
