Sep 12, 2015
BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bridger Tomlin and Sarah Kelley took first-place finishes to pace the Bowdoin College cross country teams to a season-opening win Saturday at the Bowdoin Invitational I.

The lead pack of Tomlin, Matthew Jacobson, and 2 WPI runners (Ryan Moran & Austin Scott) hung together for the majority of the race. Tomlin (26:00.17) and Jacobson (26:00.73) pulled away with a strong kick down the final straightaway to go 1-2.
Sam Dodge (26:30.09) and Ben Torda (26:42.10) took fifth and sixth place, respectively.
First-year Andrew McGowan had an impressive first race, moving up well in the final mile. He was Bowdoin's fifth finisher on the day and seventh overall.
Christian Heath had a solid performance, improving from out of Bowdoin's top-12 last year to being the seventh Polar Bear on Saturday
Women's 5K Race

With about a mile to go Sarah Kelley broke away from the field to win by a convincing 12 seconds in 19:19.61.
Lucy Skinner was third overall in 19:36.55 while first-year Martha Boben took fifth in 19:43.88 in her first collegiate competition, highlighting a strong day for the Bowdoin rookies, who had three of Bowdoin's top seven performances.
Ally Fulton (20:01.83), Julia O'Rourke (20:05.67), and Sarah Kinney (20:15.16) ran together for much of the race and moved up on a pack of WPI runners in the last mile to secure the win for Bowdoin.
