Bates has a rich history of producing All-American
athletes. The cross country
list covers several generations of Bates runners ending
most recently with Justin Easter.
The track and field list is quite an impressive
compilation. Notably, the bottom of the page
reveals the only public existing list of the Bates' most
recent All-Americans. In early
March of 2005, Bates College sent 7 athletes and their
coaches to Illinois and returned
with 7 All-Americans: Joel Anderson, Joel Colony, Scott
Cooper, Dustin Gauthier,
Mitch Krauss, Joe Northrup, and Sam Thomas.
