NEW LONDON, CT and MIDDLEBURY, VT - The Amherst men's and women's outdoor track team pulled in 10th and 18th place finishes at the Division III Track and Field Championships this past weekend at Connecticut College and Middlebury College, respectively. Despite strong individual performances, the Jeffs were unable to keep up with rival Williams College who claimed the first place spot in both meets.

First-year Janak Chandrasoma (Pasadena, CA) and sophomore Pat Hayes (East Bridgewater, MA) sprinted their way to top individual performances for the men with fourth place finishes in the 200 meter dash (22.11) and 110 meter high hurdles (15.11). Seniors Jared Moshe (Chappaqua, NY) and Rob Long (Littleton, CO) ran to sixth and seventh place finishes in the 400 meter dash in 50.33 and 50.50 seconds. The Jeffs' sprinters kept going in the relay events with strong fourth place finishes in the 4x100 (42.96) and 4x400 (3:20.70).

For the women, the 4x800 relay team pulled in the best performance of the day with a third place finish at a time of 9:43.61. Also strong were sprinters Amie Shei (Lexington, MA) and Kate Hamill (New York, NY) who grabbed sixth place finishes for Amherst in the 400 meter dash (60.63) and 400 meter hurdles (66.57). Junior mid-distance runner Anne Perez ran equally well in the 800 meter run (2:20.50), also finishing in sixth place. Teammates Laurel Kilgour (Clifton Park, NY) and Becca Woo (Manchester, NH) were not far behind, finishing in 2:23.65 for eleventh place and 2:24.07 for fourteenth place, respectively.

Both the men's and women's squads will travel to the University of Connecticut this weekend for the Open New England Championships.
