Mike LeDuc '14 won the 5,000 meters at the 2013 New England Division III Track and Field Championship.

Junior All-American Mike LeDuc posted a time of 14:30.03 to win the New England Division III Track and Field Championship in the 5,000 meters for the second consecutive year.

LeDuc's time shattered a facility record at Colby College that had stood for more than two decades. Trent Murrell of Augustana College was the previous record holder with a time of 14:36.78 in 1992. The winning time also vaults LeDuc to 11th place on the NCAA performance list.

In the 4x800 meter relay, seniors Matt Boudreau, Andrew Duarte, Ian Rathkey and Tristan Cole raced to a sixth place finish with a time of 7:53.28.

All five men have all been selected as All-New England Division III honorees. Connecticut College scored 13 points in the two events to place 19th out of the 26 teams.

For the women, sophomore Samantha Pevear threw the discus 123 feet, 10 inches to place eight in the event and garner All-New England Division III accolades.
