Runners Gain Easy Victory Conquering B.U., Providence

Paced by junior Mark Mullin, the Crimson's harriers ran away with seven of the first ten places to top Boston University and Providence College in Tuesday's cross-country competition.

Mullin's first place and a surprising fifth place by track captain Fred Howard, participating in his first college cross-country race, highlighted the meet. Running on a windy five-mile course in Boston's Franklin Park, the Crimson tallied only 22 points to B.U.'s 53 and Providence's 61.

Earlier Tuesday, the freshman cross-country team defeated Providence's freshmen 23-33 on a three-mile course. The freshmen yesterday downed Phillips Andover Academy on the same course 17-43.
