Most Recent Meet

UMass Invite - April 12th

Performer of the Meet - Khalil Flemming & Kevin Connors

Sorry to get this up a bit later than normal but has been a tougher week. Keeping local, the guys headed down the hill to compete at UMass and their 11 team invitational comprised primarily of DI teams, and with a perfect combination of incredible weather and competition, the guys posted some great marks on the day. Khalil Flemming saved the best for last in the triple jump as he grabbed the win on his final effort, getting out near 45 feet to win - this being after a big PR early in the day that netted him 4th in the long jump. Greg Turissini grabbed the other victory for the team, his being in the steeplechase as he ran a controlled 9:34 to win, running from the front the entire race while Dan Crowley came through in 4th with a 9:47 - the event was not without drama though, as moments before it was to start, the water pit barrier came off and they did not race until the conclusion of the meets a few hours later. The 4 x 100 relay of Josh Young, Javy Paulino, Khalil and Thomas Matthew got the day started with the first running event, and the guys had great hand-offs and flew around the track in 43.54. Romey Sklar just missed breaking 4:00 in the 1500 but was still well under his old PR, as he finished 7th in 4:00.28 while in the first section, Steve Lucey returned to the track to run a 4:17 with classmate Sam Wohlforth having another great race to run 4:18 (well under his mile PR conversion from indoors) and Cole Hawkins was at 4:20 - also a PR. The 800 was another real solid event for the guys, as Brent Harrison grabbed points by finishing 7th in a 1:55 while Kevin Connors got under 2:00 for the first time in a big way, running 1:57.47 while in the next section, Romey doubled back to grab the win going under 2:00 along with Nick Codola. Jesse Fajnzylber ran 2:02.50 in the unseeded 800 earlier in the day. Jamie Sandel had a strong day in the hurdles as he got his high hurdling career of to a good start as he finished 2nd in his section, running 16.34 and then looked good in the IM's later on, running 57.43 as he hit DIII NE marks in both races. Raymond Meijer had the fastest time on the day in the 5k as he finished 4th running 15:28 in the 70 degree temps (told the team they were not allowed to comment in any way about the heat as it has been such an unknown thing but it might have been a little warm ...) while Jeff Seelaus ran just above 5:00 pace to finish 7th in 15:42, and Ben Fiedler was just under 16:00. TMatt again ran the fastest time of the day for the team in the short sprints, as he followed up his relay duty with an 11.38 in the 100 and 23.18 in the 200. In the short sprint, Josh Young ran 11.53 while captain Javy Paulino clocked an 11.70 and in the 200 later, Dennis kennelly came through in 23.51 to edge out Josh and Javy who were separated by a mere .01. Matt Melton did double duty, running the 400 and finishing 6th in 49.64 before coming back with short rest and stretching the legs in the 800.
