New course record at Harvard Biathlon

Wed, Jul  9, 2008 - By Frederick Beihold

In an event of firsts, Patricia Zerfas (MD) set a new course record of 21:12 (min:sec). For the first time, the visiting match team beat the host team, in this case by a score of 30 to 26. The Summer League is alive and well.

We had cooler weather, this time, with high humidity. The wind seemed to pick up towards the end, as I was shooting from the standing position. The Pemi (Pemigewasset) leads the Summer Series at the half-way point, 52 to 48 for the match teams, and HSC (Harvard) leads for the sport teams 4 to 0.
