Bobcat of the Week: Noah Gauthier '08
After winning the NCAA Division III championship in the indoor weight throw last month, Bates senior captain Noah Gauthier (Amherst, N.H.) cemented his fourth trip to nationals on Saturday, by hitting the NCAA outdoor automatic qualifying mark in the hammer throw.
Gauthier launched a top hammer throw of 58.30 meters for first place. Gauthier also placed second in the shot put (14.63) and fifth in the discus (37.24), as the Bobcat men’s track and field team finished second out of four teams at the Colby Invitational on Saturday. He was named NESCAC Men’s Field Performer of the Week. (View a PDF of the weekly NESCAC Track and Field release.)
