Most Recent Meet

Pioneer Invite -

Performer of the Meet -Stanley Dunwell and Ralph Skinner

The team put a close on the intersession period with a strong meet effort at the Pioneer Invitational hosted by Smith College. Despite the heavy legs from some great training over the last 3 weeks, the men were still able to run away with a 2nd place finish in the team standing and had some outstanding performances across a broad spectrum of events. Maxim Doiron continued his torrid start to the season with another victory in the hurdles - and another near 1/4 second PR as he ran 8.81 for the win, and Theo Bates was right on his heels as he grabbed a runner-up finish, and was also under 9 seconds while Yonas Shiferaw grabbed a 4th with a PR of 9.22. The 500m saw a clean sweep of the podium for the Amherst contingent as David Ingraham led Jay Drain and Stanley Dunwell to the 1-2-3 sweep as they ran 1:08.09, 1:08.67 and 1:09.92 respectively. The relays were a big source of points as the men ended the meet with victories in the 4x400 - as the short sprinters (Biafra Okoronkwo, Jordan Edwards, Elijah Ngbokoli and Mayowa Tinibu) stepped up in distance to work on some strength work and grabbed the win, while in the 4x800 the all freshmen quartet of Spencer Ferguson-Dryden, Jack Dufton, Estevan Velez and Ralph Skinner sped around the track in an 8:07 to close out the day on top, while the 4x200 relay consisting of Harrison Lakehomer, Jay, Jeff Ewing and Alex Mangiafico grabbed a silver medal with their 1:36 run. Stanley grabbed his first collegiate victory when he dropped down to the 200 and won it outright from one of the slower sections while David and Theo went 3-4. Jordan continued his unbeaten streak in the triple jump, winning with a 43 foot effort while he also got out over 21 feet in the long jump to grab a 3rd place finish while Theo was 6th. Ralph made his season debut a winning one, as he led Spencer to a 1-2 finish in the 1000m by running a 2:33 while Spencer came across in 2:34. Estevan grabbed a runner-up finish in the 800, using a strong finish to just miss breaking the 2 minute barrier and class mate Chris Stone - who had run the mile earlier in the day in a 4:38 worked on his speed by dropping down to the 4 lapper. The 4x200 helped some of the guys get loose for the later events as (arrison finish 9th in the 400 and shortly after that, Alex and Jeff finished 8th and 9th in the 600m. In the throwing circle, Sam Amaka grabbed a 6th place fish with his 40 foot throw while in the earlier section, Elorm Yevudza continues to show improvements in his first season of throwing, placing 14th. In the days fastest event on the track - the 60m dash - the team was well represented as all three guys made the finals, and it was Elijah who took top honors on the team running 7.23 to grab 3rd, with Mayowa in 5th in 7.29 and Biafra coming through in 6th at 7.31. With classes now back in session, life returns to normal state with just the one practice in the afternoon and a chance to get the legs / bodies / minds under us a little more as we get ready for our next meet this weekend at Springfield College.

 

 

Upcoming Meets

With classes resuming today and the intersession period all wrapped up, the guys will rest thier bodies a little this week while they get focused back in the class room but at the end of the week, we will head down 91 to Springfield College. At Springfield's Massasoit Classic on Saturday, the Field events will get started at 10:30 with the Running events going at 11:00.
