Biography

During his four years on Mount St. James,  Gould was a member of the indoor mile relay team and a multiple point winner in many duel meets, competing in dash, shot put, and discus events.

As a sophomore, he won the 100- and 200-yard dashes versus Boston College, and ran a 9.8 in the 100-yard dash at Dartmouth.  He came in third in the 100-yard dash and first in the 220-yard dash that season at the New England Championships, and placed fifth in the National Junior AAA Meet.  The next season, he again won the 100- and 200-yard events versus Boston College and Providence, and set track records in a dual meet against Harvard.  That year he placed second in the 100-yard dash and again won the 220-yard event at New Englands.

A co-captain of the track team his senior year, Gould finished his Crusader career by once again winning the New England Intercollegiate 100- and 220-yard dashes.  He also finished second to eventual Olympic gold medalist Andy Stanfield at the IC4A Championships.
