SQUASHING THE COMPETITION
The men’s squash team is seeded third for the NESCAC championships this weekend. Despite a disappointing loss to St. Lawrence on January 29, the team capped off its season with the highest seeding in the program’s history and will face sixth-ranked Colby in the quarterfinals. This match will be the second meeting of the two teams after Bowdoin bested Colby last month with a score of 8-1. The quarterfinal matchup will take place at Trinity on Saturday at noon, and it will be streamed live for all those wanting to cheer on the team.
JUST KEEP SWIMMING
Following a statement victory over Colby last Friday, the NESCAC announced Ted Mebust ’22 as the Men’s Swimming and Diving Performer of the Week. Mebust, who was named All-American in the 2018-19 season, finished first in both the 50-meter freestyle and the 100-meter freestyle, with times of 20.94 and 46.78, respectively. In addition to his individual victories, Mebust proved pivotal in winning the 200-meter freestyle relay. Next up, the swimming and diving team will compete at Colby in the 2022 NESCAC Championships from February 17-20.
SKIING UP THE LEADERBOARD
The Nordic ski team finished second overall in the Broomhall Cup this past Sunday. Also known as the Maine State Meet, the 10-kilometer classic race is held annually in Waterville. While the team came in second, Bowdoin athletes finished first at the individual level. Aggie Macy ’24 finished first in the women’s mass start after skiing alongside teammate Renae Anderson ’21 for most of the race, and Elliot Ketchel ’21 finished first after leading for nearly the entire men’s race. The team will compete in the UVM Carnival this Friday.
