Race Notes:

I have been meaning to contact someone about this for some time, but the results listed on the Web site from the 1997 Amherst Championships someone had 1:00 (one minute) added to the actual times. Hancock ran 5:48, not 6:48; I ran 6:24, not 7:24. And so on, down the line. Also, Rob Mitchell's time was omitted for some reason. (I remember well that he nipped me at the tape.) The race was conducted under Kingston Rules, and I really have no idea how these errors happened. I felt like it was important to point out this problem, especially since Hancock was one of the best beer milers I've ever seen and should be credited with his 5:48 performance. He beat Contreras twice before graduating, and Steve only later eclipsed Hancock's best at the epic 1998 NESCAC Championships. I'd like to officially move that these results be corrected to reflect the true performances in 1997. Please contact me if you need further information. The actual results are below.

Thanks,
Allen Nunnally (Amherst '99)
