In the men’s competition, along with fourth place as a team, two Judges, Chris Brown ’12 and Marc Boutin ’12, earned All-University Athletic Association honors at the UAA championships in Chicago. Brown earned second-team honors with his ninth overall time of 26:00.05 in the 8K race, about 10 seconds shy of seventh place and first-team honors. Compared to last year he improved his placement by 13 spots with a time improved by more than 20 seconds. Boultin came in 14th to claim the final All-UAA honors, beating out the 15th place runner by less than two seconds with a time of 26:20.20. Boultin’s honors outdid his previous best, his rookie placement of 19th place that earned him Rookie of the Year honors in 2008.

Last year’s Rookie of the Year, Ed Colvin ’14 came in 21st place with a 26:35.23; three spots better than last year. In 22nd place Alex Kramer ’13 finished 26:40.10 in his first UAA race.

Other runners included Taylor Dundas ’14 at 59th place with a time of 27:57.38, Michael Rosenbach ’15 in 66th place with 28:15.02 and Greg Bray ’15 in 67th place, 4.4 seconds behind Rosenbach.

In the women’s events the Judges earned seventh place on the lead of Kate Warwick ’12 who finished the 6K course in 23:22.82 for 17th place. She was 15 seconds shy of all-conference honors. While missing honors, its worth noting that she improved her time by 20 seconds and placement by 20 spots compared to last year.

Second among the Judges was Miriam Stulin ’15, finishing 31st with a time of 23:55.86. It was her first time running the 6K in college and she was eighth among rookies.

Ali Kirsch ’14 placed 37th with a time of 27:08.73, improving by 56 seconds and 22 spots compared to last year. Victoria Sanford ’14 had a time of 25:14.65 good enough for 61st place.

Closing out the Judges were Monique Girard ’12 and Kristi Pisarik ’15 earned 67th and 69th place respectively with times of 25.55.17 and 26:13.20.

The Judges next compete closer to home when they attend the NCAA New England regional championships at Bowdoin College this weekend.
