Rob Stockwell '07
Bates senior Rob Stockwellposted a pair of double-doubles as the men's basketball team opened the season 2-0 at the Williams College Invitational over the weekend.Stockwell (Temple, N.H.) had 11 points and 12 rebounds in the Bobcats' 66-59 win over WNEC on Friday, and was the Bobcats' lone player in double figures with 25 points and 13 rebounds in a 77-51 win over Southern Vermont on Saturday. In that one game, Stockwell vaulted from 19th to 15th on Bates' all-time scoring list, with 1,151 career points.

He also averaged 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals and shot .516 (16-31) from the floor over the weekend.

Stockwell won the season's first Player of the Week honors in men's basketball from the NESCAC for his performances.

Kathryn Moore '07
Bates College seniorKathryn Moorebecame the first female in school history to earn All-America honors in both cross country and track, when she finished 32nd overall out of 279 runners at the NCAA Division III Women's Cross Country Championships on Saturday.By placing among the top 35 runners, Moore earned All-America honors. She was also eighth among the at-large runners at the meet.

The event, hosted by Wilmington College at Voice of America Park, was riddled with an uncommonly slow, mucky course thanks to heavy rains in recent days in southwestern Ohio. Moore (Pelham, N.H.) finished the 6 kilometers in 23:50, and may have turned the course conditions into her own advantage, said head coach Jay Hartshorn.

"It was one of those days where you can be hesitant, or you can accept that there's going to be a lot of mud and nobody's going to run a fast time, and go out and get after it, and that's what Kathryn did," said Hartshorn.

Moore, an All-American steeplechase runner in track and field, became the first Bates female to earn NCAA All-America honors in cross country since Adelia Myrick '99 did it in 1996, and the fourth in school history.
