From a reader:


The Ephmen of Williams Swimming and Diving dedicated their 2007 championship season to Nate when they proudly wore their conference shirts emblazoned with the simple words on the back: “Semper Athlete.” (“Semper,” obviously for the Marines, and “Athlete,” one of his favorite terms for any of his teammates.) Nate would be proud of “his boys”: each of the 24 Williams conference team members had a hand in dominating the NESCAC competition. By the time it was over, the Ephmen had scored 2,019.5 points — surpassing the tally of their nearest competitor, Amherst, by more than 50% (711.5 points).
