On the men's side, the Judges put their top five runners just over one minute apart, just missing putting all five among the top 100 competitors. Junior Ed Colvin (Roslindale, Mass./Central Catholic School) led the way, but was unable to claim his first All-New England honor, finishing in 50th place out of the 351 entrants with a time of 26:01.17 over the 8K course. Colvin finished in 49th place a year ago.
In the first regional meet and the final cross country race of his career, senior Mik Kern (Groton, N.Y./Groton) turned in a fine performance, placing 62nd with a time of 26:16.10. It was the second time this season that Kern was the squad's second runner. Classmate Alex Kramer (No. Andover, Mass./No. Andover) was the third finisher for the Judges, coming in 72nd with a time of 26:27.86.
Sophomore Jarrett Harrigan (Ipswich, Mass./St. Johns Prep) was not far behind Kramer, coming in 77th with a time of 26:35.70, while classmate Greg Bray (Duxbury, Mass./Duxbury) just missed out on the top 100 by less than a second, finishing in 101st with a time of 27:03.55 to round out the scorers for the Judges.
