Jennifer Caban ’07
Kathryn Moore ’07
LEWISTON, Maine — Recent Bates graduates Jennifer Caban and Kathryn Moore were each named to the 2007 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District women’s track & field/cross country team, announced on Thursday.
Caban received First Team honors in the District 1 College Division, while Moore picked up Second Team honors. Only two other athletes from NESCAC schools, Ellen Davis of Wesleyan and Rachel Bennek of Hamilton, earned the award.
Caban (Bedford, Mass./Bedford) graduated cum laude last month with a major in environmental studies, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.72. She earned All-America honors in indoor track as a member of Bates’ distance medley relay team, and also qualified provisionally for the NCAA outdoor championships in the 800 meters. Caban owns the Bates records in the indoor distance medley relay (12:03.29), the outdoor 800 meters (2:14.28) and the outdoor 4×800 relay (9:22.77). As a First Team honoree, Caban enters the pool of nominees for Academic All-America honors.
Moore (Pelham, N.H./Phillips Andover) graduated last month with a major in biology, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.40. A team captain in all three seasons, Moore won All-America honors in four consecutive athletic seasons (twice in the outdoor 3,000-meter steeplechase, once in cross country and once in the indoor distance medley relay), becoming the first Bates woman to become All-America in three or more consecutive seasons. Moore also placed 10th in Division III in the 5,000-meter run at the 2007 NCAA indoor championships, and she won the steeplechase at the 2007 all-divisions Open New England Championships in 10:33.20, breaking her own Bates record by 16.26 seconds. Moore owns Bates records in the 3,000 steeplechase, the outdoor 5,000 and the indoor distance medley relay. She was the recipient of the 2007 Bates Female Athlete of the Year award.
Both women were also recently inducted into the Bates College Scholar-Athlete Society.
