WALTHAM — There are very few sure things in sports at any level, whether it be pro, college or high school, but for the past four years at Bentley University there has been at least one sure thing for the Falcons track team, regardless of the season.

Whether it be cross country in the fall, indoor track in the winter or outdoor track in the spring, the Falcons and their coaching staff have known that Erik Alatalo would be at the starting line, and at the end of whatever race he was in, he would be among the top finishers, having once again given his usual consistent effort.

Alatalo, a 2013 graduate of Wilmington High School, and a former captain of both the Wildcats Cross Country as well as Spring Track teams, as well as being named a Middlesex League All-Star, is entering the final season of his fine career with the Bentley Falcons, having wrapped up his winter season this past week and preparing for the spring season to get underway.
