Yesterday's 14th Annual Phil Soule Phlail 5k was a big success! It was a fine fall day for a race, and over 100 runners and walkers turned out to honor Phil Soule's legacy and celebrate Homecoming. Since we had a big group of skiers to work the race this year, for the first time ever some of our people were able to run, and a good time was had by all. Bowdoin student John Auer '23 won the men's race in a blistering 16:24, and Anh Nguyen of South Portland was the women's winner in 22:49, closely followed by Bowdoin Nordic alum Rachel Zafren '18. Stephen Lento was the top alumni lineman in 23:44. We were thrilled to see a few others Bowdoin Nordic folks show up: Brent Jepson '74, former captain Grace Hyndman '11, and former assistant coach Zach Stegeman. Overall, a great day at the races.

Now we're on to the season - tryouts start today!
