Hamilton College's Peter DeWeirdt '18 (Winnetka, Ill./New Trier HS) has earned a spot on the 2017 NESCAC Men's Cross Country All-Conference Team.

Men's Cross Country All-NESCAC Team

The all-conference team is based on performance at the 2017 NESCAC Men's Cross Country Championship, which was held at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine, on Saturday, Oct. 28. The top seven finishers are placed on the first team and the next seven make the second team.

DeWeirdt took 13th place out of 140 runners with a time of 25:43.5 on the 8-kilometer course and picked up second team honors. The finish was DeWeirdt's best at the NESCAC meet. He missed his personal-record time on an 8K course by less than 10 seconds.

DeWeirdt and his Hamilton teammates are off until the NCAA Division III Atlantic Region Championships at Houghton College's Field of Dreams on Saturday, Nov. 11. The men's race is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
