Science teams compete in SLU Quadathlon 2010

For the past 25 years, Columbus Day is a weekend that elite athletes at St. Lawrence come out to compete for a year’s worth of bragging rights and the infamous quathlon t-shirt. The event consists of four legs: a 500-yard swim, 5-mile bike, one and a half mile canoe and a two-mile run.

This year science faculty and students fielded two teams: Aurum and Xenon. Team Aurum, which consisted of Doug McWilliams, Jonathon Foster-Moore, Nick Mello and Assistant Professor of Chemistry Matthew Skeels, placed second overall and won the mens open category, with a combined time of 47:38. A second team, Xenon, of Elle Rathbun, Associate Professor of Chemistry Nadia Marano, Environmental Health & Safety Officer Suna Stone-McMasters, and family nurse practitioner Caroline Pearson took FIRST place in womens open category. Congratulations on a job well done!
