HANOVER, N.H. -- Bates College senior Noah Gauthier (Amherst, N.H.) notched a 35-pound weight throw of 56 feet, 6.75 inches on Sunday at the Dartmouth Relays, meeting the provisional qualifying mark to compete at the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships.
Gauthier's throw was the second best by a Division III thrower thus far this indoor season.
Bates' lone competitor at the meet, the co-captain finished fifth out of 23 competitors in the weight throw.
Gauthier finished eighth at nationals in 2007 in the weight throw, as well as fifth in the hammer throw at outdoor nationals, winning All-America honors in both events.
