HOW IT HAPPENED

Sophomore Jimmy Cannon (Quincy, Mass.) paced the Beacons for a fourth-consecutive meet. He stayed with the front of the pack nearly the entire way and ended up finishing in fourth place with a time of 27:33. His time was good for second amongst all Division III runners.

Senior Cameron Chase (Lutz, Fla.) was the second Beacon to trip the sensor. He made a huge push over the second-half of the race to finish 32nd in a time of 29:20.

Junior Prosper Lubega (Watertown, Mass.) came in shortly afterwards, as he finished in 36th place (29:33).

Sophomore Jack Davis (Southwick, Mass.) was the final Beacon to finish in the top-42. He broke the 30-minute mark for the first time this season and ran a new career-best time of 29:33.

Freshman Jonathan Hodge set a new personal best of his own with a time of 32:32, while freshmen Anthony Lynch (36:04) and Anthony Martinez (39:54) each made their collegiate debuts in the meet.

WHAT'S NEXT

The Beacons will have two weeks to prepare for the Little East Conerence Championship Meet on Saturday October 27. This year's LEC Championship Meet will be hosted by Rhode Island College.
