"Just before the start of the Varsity G race the official shouted out that the meet organizers had saved the best for last," Chatham coach Patrick Barry said. "He was referring to the fact that the Cougar Varsity boys were in race 40 of a 40-race agenda. It appears that Colin Logsdon and Bo Raadam took the comment very seriously as they went out fast and finished in first and third position leading the Chatham harriers to a third place finish.

"Colin became the first Chatham male to win a division at the Manhattan Invitational in many years."
