NESCAC Rundown

November 1 is right around the corner. You know what that means, the 2017 NESCAC Championships might as well be next week. Seems like a good time to revisit the 2016 meet and see what we can learn. So much has changed in this conference since I joined it back in 1997, but it seems like only recently that the depth of this meet reached a whole new level.
