WATERVILLE, Maine ­-- Colby College’s Gus Thompson (Taft School/New Canaan, Conn.) was named to the 2007 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference Team after finishing third at the league championships on Saturday and Sunday.

Thompson was one of seven golfers on the NESCAC first team. He shot a 73 on Saturday and added a closing 76 to finish with a two-day total of 149. Thompson was just three strokes behind winner Josh Grossman of Trinity College and one back of runner-up Brad Roche of Hamilton College.

Thompson is the first Colby golfer to make the All-NESCAC team since Jake Hobart earned second-team honors in 2001. Thompson and the Mules will host the Colby Invitational this Saturday at noon at Waterville Country Club.
