The women’s cross country team was in Madison, Wis. this weekend competing against 36 other teams from all over the country at the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational.
The Eagles put up an impressive performance finishing in the 16th spot overall, ahead of four top 30 programs: No. 17 Duke, No. 25 Vanderbilt, No. 26 BYU, and No. 29 Texas.
Liv Westphal was the top finisher for BC, coming in 19th place in a field of 288 runners with a time of 20:10. Next for the Eagles was Brittany Winslow with a time of 20:47, good enough for 64th place. She was followed by Morgan Miller, Madeleine Davidson, and Catherine Maloy, who all finished in under 22 minutes.
The men’s cross country team was also in the Midwest in Terre Haute, Ind. for Pre-Nationals.
Out of 20 teams, the Eagles came in eighth. Kevin Sullivan was the first finisher for BC with a time of 25:50, which put him in 37th place out of a field of 135 runners. James Newhouse finished just five seconds later, and Anthony Bellitti crossed the line just as the clock hit the 26th minute. Finishing off the Eagles’ top five was Brian McDavitt with a time of 26:18.
BC sailing was represented in three different competitions last weekend.
At the New England Sloop Championship in Newport, R.I., BC placed second and qualified for a spot in the ICSA Match Racing Nationals.
Katja Sertl, Harry Koeppel, and William Bailey represented BC at the regatta, and faced Brown, Roger Williams, and Yale in a semifinal round, only to be defeated by Yale in the final.
Meanwhile, Erika Reineke and Riley Calhoun were making an impact for BC at the Moody Intersectional Regatta during which the Eagles took home the team victory with 116 points, just ahead of Harvard and Yale.
Reineke and Calhoun took home one first place, two second places, and four third place finishes to win the A Division. In the B Division, Domenic Bove and Katherine Wysocki placed fifth with two first place finishes, a second place, and a third.
The third event for the sailors was the Nicholas Barnett Trophy regatta, which was hosted by Bowdoin.
BC took a narrow victory, beating Dartmouth by just one point. Maxwell Simmons and Emily Vasiliou had three first place finishes and two second place finishes, along with two third place results in the A Division.
Ryan Schmitz and Isabelle Salvaterra came in fourth in the B Division with two performances for second place, three for fourth, and a third place finish to end the weekend.
