1st Annual Eggnog Mile Kicks off Alumni Gathering; Ultimate Streak Continues
Colby Pines (09) turned out at this year's annual gathering of past and present Campolindo and College Park cross country and track stars with the right combination of running fitness and digestive tolerance to win the 1st edition of the eggnog mile event.
Choking down 9 ounces of the cold, creamy holiday beverage before running each of the 4 laps seemed hardly a concern for the recent Princeton grad as he covered the distance in 5:20. Only Chris Garvey (14) was able to muster a challenge, leading the first lap, but ultimately finishing 20 seconds back.
In the girls' division, Mary Orders (15), a late addition to the field, stole the crown. Falcon alums Lauren Crawford (09) and Susie Goetz (99) just could not match the youngster's guzzling greatness.
Pines and Orders earned Garmin GPS watches for their victories, while the rest of the top 10 finishers received Timex watches or apparel items.
The race was followed by the traditional Ultimate Death Match, which enjoyed its traditional lopsided outcome.

Youngsters Bring Numbers, Fall behind Early as Veterans Dominate Death Match
In spite of an impressive turnout for the current Campolindo and College Park athletes, the 2013 edition of the Alumni Ultimate Frisbee Death Match turned out to be more of the same as the unstoppable force of maturity scored virtually at will. As the final quarter of play expired, the Alumni enjoyed a 16 point lead, 22-6.
With the likes of David Vigil (98), Betsy Sale (01), Ashley Allen (02), Jared Oubre (04), Justin Delessert (05), Lauren Crawford (09), Kelsey Gallagher (10), and Will Holland (11) representing the Falcons, as well as Campolindo graduates that included Jason Budge (09), Michael Brondello (09), Colby Pines (09), Darren Brodowy (12), Thomas Joyce (12), Kevin Gelston (12), Juliet Farnan (12), and Andy VanHeuit (13), the youngsters had their hands full.
The contest began with a quick score from the current athletes. Unfortunately for them, it was their only lead of the day. What followed was a brutal offensive assault by the veterans.
Nevertheless, in the spirit of the holidays, fun and goodtimes were enjoyed be all.
