Last week was Bowdoin's All Sports Award Ceremony, and I'm happy to report that Elliot was named the Outstanding First-Year Male Athlete!  It's a real honor considering how many great hard-working athletes there are on campus - I'm really thrilled that Elliot was able to stand out among such a strong group.  This is just the third time Bowdoin Nordic has won an award at this event - our team won the 77 Award in 2016, and John Hall '08 won the Academic Achievement Award for Men - and it's a nice feeling to see one of our own being recognized.  It's certainly a well-earned award.  Anyone who reads this blog already knows about Elliot's exploits:  NCAA qualifier, podium finish in the 10k classic at Regionals, 2nd place at the Chummy Cup and 1st Team All-State, and EISA All-Academic honors.  In the USSA rankings, he's currently the top ranked skier in the country in his year of birth.  He had the most successful season ever of any Bowdoin Nordic first-year, and the future is bright.  I can't wait to see what he and the rest of the crew can do in the next few years!
Congratulations to Elliot and to all of the award winners!  It's been a great year for Bowdoin Athletics, and it's exciting to see our fellow teams crushing it all three seasons.  Go U Bears!
