Track at Bates Round 3
Winter and Spring 2013

Picking up from where we left off last year, this was another great season with the Bobcats. We had a handful of talented athletes graduate but we stepped up to the plate and filled the gap. It was tough because we had high expectations going into the season, which of course only made it more exciting. 

During the Indoor season we won the State of Maine Championships and were Runner Up at New England D3’s. And during the Outdoor season we won State of Maine, New England D3’s and ECAC’s… and were Runner Up at NESCAC Championships. This years team was great, we pretty much had someone break into the Bates All Time top 10 performance list in every event… if not set a new school record. 

Without mentioning too many seniors there was David Hardison, James Lepage and the beast from Georgia, David Pless…who can literally go on and compete at the Olympics if he wanted. And I know the same thing happens every year, talented seniors graduate and the underclassmen have to step it up… but this was an amazing group of seniors!

After an extremely tough return to track an field, my second season wasn’t as brutal. My body and lungs were more familiar with the track workouts and I was prepared to build off of what I had started in 2012. I still haven’t set new PR’s but I did tie my 200 time of 22.2, and my 400 was 50.11. I also gave triple jump a shot during the State of Maine Championships and pulled off 8th place with a jump of 12.27m. With two days of practice, I’ll take that any time hah!! I was All ECAC, New Englands, New England D3’s, State of Maine and NESCAC’s this year.

 I was awarded the Best Offensive Player Award

Track at Bates College – “Round 2” 
Winter and Spring 2012

My first season back
at Bates College probably couldn’t have come at a better time. I’d say we are the best team in Bates history. During the
Indoor season we won New England’s Championships and the Eastern
College Athletic Conference Championships. During the outdoor season we won ECAC’s,
NESCAC Championships and the State of Maine Championships.

On a
personal level, my times were solid… in the 200 I ran a 22.61 and a
50.59 in the 400 which technically aren’t PR’s but good enough for my
first season back.

My actual personal records are 10.9 in the 100, 22.2 in the 200, 49.09 in the 400… so far~

I ran the 100 – 400 and also competed in the Long and Triple Jump. I will update this section when I get the chance… I want to get my best performances in all of my events, and maybe a picture or two.

This is also where I first learned to play rugby!
