NEW LONDON, Conn. — The Middlebury College women’s cross country team won its 12th NESCAC championship on Saturday in an event hosted by Connecticut College. The Panther men also turned in a strong performance, placing second in the 11-team field.
The Middlebury women placed five of its runners among the top nine. The win was so convincing that any of the other top five racers combined would still not have beat the Panthers’ score of 29. Williams placed second with 51 points, followed by Tufts in third with 90.
