After the third race of the collegiate season, the NUTTs are in first place
overall!! Despite the curveball that was thrown at the team (when the swim portion was cancelled the morning of the race due to the hurricane out at sea and a one mile beach run was substituted) both the boys and girls did great! Owen, Alex, Eric and Don managed to keep the boys' rankings up with a 3rd place finish even though they only had four racers! Miraculously, Don's hair stayed fabulous during the entire race; cornrows really are in style again!
Lauren had a great photo finish and was just beat out by a UMass racer by six hundredths of a second, yet she still finished in 4th place! Don't worry, she will beat her next time!
Marissa, Kate, Alyssa, Kendra, Marini and Molly all also had strong races and helped the girls' team to finish in 1st place at the race!
Race success is most likely due to Mrs. Small's amazing pre-race dinner of garlic bread, pasta, salad, and warm apple crisp! A huge thank you goes out to the Small family and the Santos family for letting the team stay in their houses and providing the team with food, and most importantly, coffee in the morning! Side note:
A congratulations is in order for Kendra and Alex for being the first to have race day success!! BE PROUD!
And a huge shout out to Anastasia and Patt5e
for being the best cheerleaders the team could ask for. Your support and enthusiasm during the entire race weekend is really appreciated and we wouldn't be where we are right now without you both!
