When Paul and Caroline Bolick watch their children, Kim and Tim compete, respectively, for Connecticut College and Bentley University, it’s a reminder of their own time as standout athletes at the two schools.
Paul is a Bentley Athletic Hall of Famer (class of 1987) who holds the school record in the 3,000 meter steeplechase. His wife played field hockey and was a lacrosse captain at Connecticut College (class of 1984).
Kim, a junior at Connecticut College, is a member of the sailing team in the fall and spring, along with the indoor track team. She has set school records in the mile (4:59) and 1,000 meters (2:57.65) and as anchor with the 4 x 800 relay squad. She also qualified for the NCAA Division 3-mile run last winter.
