Phil Soule Phlail 2019

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.  Complete results here.

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