Bhagavathi Caps Cross Country Career at NCAA Championships

Bhagavathi Caps Cross Country Career at NCAA Championships

WINNECONNE, Wisc. (Nov. 21, 2015) – Senior Aditya Bhagavathi (West Windsor, N.J. / West Windsor-Plainsboro North) capped his Caltech cross country career with a 191st-place finish at the NCAA Division III Championships this Saturday.

Competing in his second straight national championship after qualifying as an individual with a 13th-place finish in the West Regional, Bhagavathi was caught in a large dogpile just seconds into the race but fought his way from the back of the pack to a respectable finish at 26:00 that was a testament to the grit and determination he has displayed throughout his career.

Head Coach Ben Raphelson and Bhagavathi will turn their attention to the indoor and outdoor track & field seasons this winter and spring, where the senior will look to defend his SCIAC title in the 5,000-meter run.
