Most Recent Meet

Little Three's -

Performer of the Meet - Maxim Doiron and Jordan Edwards

A smaller contingent of the team headed down to Wesleyan to kick off 2017, competing at the Little Three Championships against Williams and Wesleyan. Despite not having large umbers or event coverage that we might normally have, the guys were not deterred and competed extremely well to grab a runner-up finish. With the 2nd week of intersession coming to an end - with a final week ahead of us - we have been doing a lot of great training and building strength and fitness, and despite some heavy tired legs, it was clear that the work is paying off. Maxim Doiron grabbed the first victory of the year for the team - as well as his first collegiate win along with a huge PR - as he crushed the 60 hurdles, knocking a 1/4 of a second off his time from last year, while freshman Yonas Shiferaw and Theo bates would come charging in right behind him in 3rd and 4th. The other victory on the day came from Jordan Edwards in the triple jump - his first collegiate win - where, in between jumps he was at the same time, competing in the high jump and still managed to launch a 44 foot bomb to jump away from the competition. He was 2nd in the high jump clearing 6 feet and also grabbed points (4th) in the long jump - where his high school teammate Theo would grab a 3rd place, 21 foot jump. The freshmen are certainly making their impact as a pair of them - Elijah Ngbokoli and Biafra Okoronkwo finished 2nd and 4th in the dash, and then later in the day in the 200, Elijah would repeat as runner-up while Biafra grabbed 5th with Mayowa Tinibu grabbing 4th so a 2,4,5 finish for the freshmen trio. Spencer Ferguson-Dryden did double duty in the days longest events as he grabbed5th in the mile running 4:26 and then put the flats on and did a comfortable effort in the 3k running 9:35. the 600 saw David Ingraham, Jay Drain and Stanley Dunwell come through the line in 3rd 4th and 5th place and they would throw Theo in the mix for the 4x400 to finish the day with a runner-up finish. Estevan Velez grabbed a 3rd place finish with a late homestretch kick in the 1000 and Jeff Ewing returned from a foot injury this fall, to hit the K for the first time ever while dropping down 1 lap to the 800, a pair of first years finished in 5th and 7th as jack Dufton did some of the early pacing while Alex Mangiafico got his first taste of collegiate track action. This quartet would come back a little while after their individual events to run the 4x800 and finish in 4th. Sam Amaka, despite having some left arm issues from a strain early in the week was still able to grab a 6th place finish in the weight throw before he finished his day in 4th with the shot put while track new come Elorm Yevudza got his first taste of competition placing in 9th in both events. The team will stay local this week, as we will head across the river to compete at the Smith Invitational on Saturday as we will put a close on another intersession and then prepare for the start of 2nd semester classes on Monday.
