|Cross Country 2006|
From Ted Sullivan...
He writes ... Here is a photo of the Middlebury girls cross country team that won both the New England and National Div III Championships. Annie had a great season and ran 7th for the team, putting her on varsity and giving her the privilege to compete in the NCAA tournament as a freshman. They had horrible conditions on the course in West Chester Ohio, running in standing water and mud that was at times ankle deep. It was a very close race, with Middlebury's five finishing first but the Amherst team only 1 point behind! I saw Jason Hanrahan there, painted in Tufts colors, rooting for the "Jumbos."

|The regular season of collegiate outdoor track and field is short and, particularly in the Northeast, filled with bad weather. Sometimes times, heights and distances are more of a testament to the athlete's willingness to battle the elements than to their conditioning and preparation.|

|Indoor Track 2005 - 2006|
This January, a group
of six students from Williams College, located in
Williamstown, MA, will travel to Nogales, Arizona, and trek
the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail. After a
month of running and biking across the diverse terrain of
desert expanses, forest trails, and California coastland,
the group will arrive in San Francisco just as Anza did more
than two centuries prior. This is the first time a group
has attempted to complete the trail in its entirety solely
by running and biking. Anza’s original expedition was a
pioneering venture; in a similar manner, this group views
themselves as pioneers in their unique endeavor. The
purpose of the journey is to observe and experience the
culture of southern Arizona and the California coast by
retracing Anza’s footsteps. Through this goal, more
significant effects will be achieved. The group will come
to appreciate the effect of the Anza expedition on the
development of today’s culture, and subsequently be able to
communicate this link back to the people living in these
areas. In this way, a multitude of communities will be able
to reconnect with their heritage through an awareness of
this historic trail.
