Gojumbos: Home of Men’s Cross Country and Track & Field at Tufts University
12/2/2014 12:36 PM For the 4th consecutive year, 8 jumbos traveled to the Midwest to compete in the NCAA Division III Cross Country Nationals. Coming in as the last team in the New England region and the 25th ranked team nationally, outside expectations were not particularly high for the team. The team ran well and outplaced their “seed” to finish 22nd, beating at least one team from six other regions.

The Jumbos’ nationals race was highlighted by Senior co-captain Nick Guarnaccia, who broke into the top 100 in the race. Following a series of disappointing races at NESCACs and Regionals, Nick put himself out there and found the strength he was searching for all season, beating over 15 runners who he lost to one week before and improving by 55 places...
11/18/2014 2:59 PM 77 Crazy Jumbos from the Tufts Track and Field, Cross Country, and Crew teams made the long drive out to Williams College this past Saturday to watch their friends and teammates compete in the New England DIII Regional Championships. The XC men fed off of their support and fought to a 6th place finish in what would seem to be the strongest region in the country, earning themselves an at-large bid into the DIII National Championships next weekend in Mason, OH.

It was a calm but icy cold day, and the frozen ground made for firm and fast conditions. The race got off to a fast start, but sophomore duo of Luke O’Connor and Tim Nichols established themselves in the front pack early on. Senior Marshall Pagano took an unfortunate fall within t...
11/11/2014 7:33 PM This past Saturday, the Jumbos traveled westward to Stanley Park course for the ECAC Championships hosted by Westfield State. While the top 7 runners rested for next week’s NCAA Regional Championship, the second 7 toed the line to battle with teams from around the east coast. Facing a mixture of varsity and sub-varsity teams, Tufts ran their way to an impressive 2nd place team finish, falling only to NESCAC foe Williams College.

Junior Michael Curley set an aggressive tone early in the race, leading the entire 300 runner field through the first 3 miles. The fast pace that he established certainly played a role in the slew of PRs that were run. As the race wound back into the second woods loop, Tufts was well established at the front of...
11/5/2014 11:17 AM We traveled to Middlebury College for our annual conference meet on a chilly, softly drizzling Saturday. The course was soft at points, but overall conditions were set for a fast hard race and the field did not disappoint.

Tufts placed 5th out of the 11 teams, one notch ahead of where we were ranked heading in to the meet – bumping down Bates who was previously ranked 5th. Behind the NCAA-aiming quartet of champion Williams, runner-up Colby, host Middlebury, and Amherst, 5th place is strong but we look to improve upon our finish both at the ECAC and DIII New England championships in the next two weeks.

Leading the Jumbo way for the first time this season was sophomore Tim Nichols ‘17, crossing the line in 7th to earn All-NESCAC ...
10/21/2014 6:59 PM The Jumbos sent a small squad of 6 runner to the Connecticut College Invitational this past weekend, while their top 12 runners rested for the upcoming NESCAC Championships. Tufts fought hard to a 13th place finish on a warm and windy day in CT, defeating several of their opponent’s varsity teams.

Senior Joe Poupard lead his teammates through the early stages of the race with an aggressive first mile. He was soon joined by freshmen Sam Little and John Greenberg, who have worked well together in every race this year. Little has shown great progress in adjusting to the 8k distance, moved up well through the middle part of the race, and was the first Tufts runner across the line in a time of 27:05. The experience he has gained in the chao...
