Mens Track & Field
Noble Boutin (Menlo College) named, NAIA/GSAC Scholar-Athlete
Date of competition: Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Recently announced by both the Golden State Athletic Conference and the NAIA, Noble Boutin has been named a scholar athlete at both the conference and national level in Track and Field.
After earning the designation from the conference office recently, the NAIA announced its national list, with Boutin as the lone Oak to qualify. This marks the first time in Menlo history an athlete has won the awards twice in one season, as Boutin also was named a scholar athlete in Cross Country. In order to qualify, a student athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for the honor.
Boutin used his Cross Country training to run longer-distance events during the Track & Field season, and he continued to excel. He set three personal records during the season: 3000m, 5000m, and 10000m. His 34:18.8 in the 10000m at the 2019 GSAC Championships represents a program record, and his top marks in the 3000m and 5000m place him in the top-ten all-time in program history. Boutin was also named a GSAC/Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete in the fall in Cross Country, where he finished third on the team in overall pace. Boutin is a finance major who owns a 3.93 cumulative GPA after six semesters at Menlo College.
