University of Vermont's Bill Harmeyer captured his second gold medal, or in this case a cowbell, at the NCAA© Regionals during the Bates Carnival in Rumford, completing the 20k race in 52:49.6. It was the second win in as many days for the South Burlington native, as he won the 10k freestyle race on Day 1 of the competition. Harmeyer's teammate Ben Ogden, a freshman from Landgrove, Vermont who dominated on these trails last year at the Eastern High School Championships, came in second with a time of 52:50.8. Third place went to Dartmouth senior Callan DeLine, a Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy graduate from Avon, Colorado, who completed the foul laps in 52:51.2.
Rounding out the top ten were Finn O'Connell of UVM, Sam Wood of Middlebury, Ian Moore of UVM, Zane Fields of Colby, Lewis Nottonson of Middlebury, Sam Hodges of Middlebury, and James Kitch of Harvard.
