Season Depth Charts - Men & Women

NCAA's - March 11-12th
Looking to finish off the 2005 Indoor season in style at the NCAA's, held at Illinois Wesleyan, both the men and the women did just that. The women not only raced tremendously, but they did so well that they came home with the Third Place trophy - the first ever Top Four placing at the Nationals. Carter Hamill ended her Amherst College Indoor track career with, fittingly, a victory in the 5000m - her 3rd win at the Nationals to go along with her Freshmen and Junior year wins. Running a different racing strategy then would be her normal race pattern - running hard from the front - she followed the leaders until 3 laps to go and then made a huge and decisive move that sealed the 12 second victory. Shauneen Garrahan stuck to the racing plan in the final of the mile - the same one that she used so effectively in the semi's on Friday night - and raced into 2nd place with 100m to go, finishing in 4:54.78, runner-up to Wartburg senior Missy Buttry (4:43 for the mile). On Friday night, the DMR team of Carter, Hannah Campbell, Ginger Polich and Shauneen raced to a runner-up finish - same place as last year - behind the team from Wartburg College who had the benefit of an anchor leg of the mid 4:30's. Carter held a lead in the opening leg until being caught in the last 100m but still handed off in 2nd having run 3:37, and then Hannah ran the 400 leg and kept us in 2nd at the hand-off. Ginger, having run the 800 semi's earlier looked a little tired but was still able to make up the distance on the leader from Wisconsin Stevens Point and then in the last lap surged to the lead. Shauneen anchored the team to a runner-up finish, holding off the top seeded Williams squad. Ginger finished 4th in her semi of the 800 running a very strong race, but did not advance to the finals when the 2nd heat ran faster times.

The men (John Babbott, Sam Hayman, Jack Morgan and Mike Page) had qualified for the DMR last weekend, in their only shot at racing fast and they came out to NCAA's seeded 6th, with only 3 seconds separating all 10 teams. Switching John to the opening 1200 leg, and moving Jack to the 800 as he had raced an hour before in the 800 semi's, paid off handsomely. While the race was not super fast and the pack was tightly congested, John stayed out of trouble during the opening 800 (through in 205) before starting to work his way through the pack and handing off in 5th place having run 3:06. Sam raced the 400 leg, and while the time was not super fast - 51 seconds - he raced it incredibly well and had a great finish in the last stretch to keep the team in the race. Jack got the stick and going through the 400 in 55 seconds, moved into 4th and then kept it going as he raced to a 1:55 leg and closed in on the leaders handing off in 3rd. Mike got the stick and was about 2 seconds down from the leaders, and an opening 400 of 62 kept the distance and at the 800 in 2:08 he was caught by 2 teams from behind and then over the 3rd quarter, he was in 5th with a 2-3 second gap form the front pack and a small gap behind him from the chase pack. As he headed into the last lap, he started his kick and quickly started to close up the gap on the leaders, and he went by the 4th place team at the top of the stretch and moved into 3rd, only inches from the finish line. Jack raced in the 1st section of the 800, but did not advance to the finals, as the times in his heat and in the other section were faster.

Trinity Last Chance - Mar 4th (Student)
With only the NCAA's as the remaining week, this was the last meet of the season for some, and the last chance to hit marks needed for qualifying for NCAA's. Several school records, NCAA qualifying marks and an extremely pumped up men's DMR highlighted the evening. The men's DMR of Jack Morgan, Sam Hayman, John Babbott and Mike Page had not run together as a foursome due to a lingering illness to one of the guys, but they stepped to the line hoping to run fast enough to make the return trip to NCAA's. Jack led off with a strong 3:30 1200 leg, and we are in the 2nd spot. Sam blasted his 400 in 50.4, before handing off to John in 3rd place. John went scorching through the first 600 chasing after the leaders, and in the last lap, started to close the gap considerably and handed off to Mike in 2nd, after a 1:54 split. Mike reeled in the Haverford anchor leg with his 2:04 split at the 800, and kept rolling as he split 4:11.7 for the 1600 and the men not only broke the school record by 4 seconds, but automatically qualified for NCAA's. Matt Katz grabbed a 9th place finish in the mile, running 4:21.93

School records were abound with the women's results. Lee-Jay Henry, after some block adjustments earlier in eh week, wasted no time lowering her own record as she blasted to an 8.74 in the qualifying round - take .23 seconds off of her record! Carter Hamill led the mile from the very gun, and ran her first sub 5 minute mile as she hit an NCAA provisional mark. Next to toe the line was Ginger Polich in the 600, where she simply ran away from everyone and took nearly 3 seconds off of her own school record, running 1:36. You win some, then you lose some - as Ginger lowered her own 600 record, she watched Shauneen take down her week old record in the 800 with  an NCAA automatic mark of 2:13.81 to finish 2nd in a very loaded 800 race. Heather Wilson, going 3 for 3 in race victories in the 5000 this winter, ran away from the field to win in an 18:02. Hannah Campbell ran her best time of the season in the 200 - 26.82 - to grab 8th while Lyndsey Scott finish 16th. The DMR team of Carter, Hannah, Ginger and Shauneen won their race to finish the night, and will hopefully challenge for the NCAA title this coming week.

Open New England's - Feb. 25-26 (Student & Honors)
Competing against many of the finest track & field competitors in New England, Amherst got the chance to take advantage of the great competition and show how good they are. The women's 10th place finish was led by Shauneen Garrahan's victory in the mile, while the men capped their day with a 6th place finish in the 4x800 Relay. In the women's mile, Quinnipiac led for the first 1200 meters of the race before Shauneen took the lead, only to be overtaken for the lead going into the bell lap. Coming off the final turn she powered back into the lead and grabbed the win, breaking the 4:50 barrier for the first time ever - along with the school record. Ginger Polich lowered the 800 record as she raced to a 2:15.78 in the qualifying rounds, and then came back in the finals and broke it again, lowering the time to 2:15.61 and grabbing a 5th place finish, to go along with an NCAA provisional mark. Carter Hamill grabbed 4th in a hotly contested 3000, as she lowered her best mark of the season. The 4x400 Relay team consisting of Lee-Jay Henry, Julia Rucker, Hannah Campbell and Lyndsey Scott, focused solely on the relay this weekend, and it paid off as they raced to a new school record time of 4:01.31 - with all 4 runners racing their best splits of the season. Heather Wilson, running in the unseeded section of the 5000, broke away from the pack at the 2 mile mark, and significantly negative split her race and broke the 18 minute barrier with her 10th place finish - gapping the 2nd place finisher by 18 seconds.

The men's 4 x 800 team of John Babbott, Sam Hayman, Rom Cabeza and Jack Morgan got a great lead off leg by Babbott (1:55.9), which was followed by Sam's first ever sub 2:00 leg (1:57.7), then Rom, racing against the clock for the sake of his hair, split 1:58.4 and handed the stick off to Jack, who anchored the unseeded section win, and 6th place finish over all, with his 1:56.0 leg. Earlier in the day, Jack ran to an 8th place finish in the 800, a race which he qualified for the finals that night before when he ran to an indoor PR of 1:53.23 to move up in the NCAA rankings. Mike Page, won the unseeded section of the 3k handily in an 8:31.88 and wound up grabbing an 8th place finish overall, and seems to be finally recovering from the viral infection that has hampered his marks over the last couple of weeks. John, in addition to running a great lead off leg in the relay, also PR'd in the 800 qualifying heats when he ran a 1:56.10. Matt Katz lowered his best time in the mile down to a 4:20.24 in his section of the mile.

DIII New England's - Feb. 19th (Student)
The men headed to Tufts, while the women simply crossed the Connecticut River and headed to Smith as both teams competed at their respective DIII New England Championships. While the women's team does not boast of huge numbers, the quality of what is there was in full force as they battled to a 3rd place finish - duplicating last years efforts, but with a higher point score. It would be a toss-up if they were to give an MVP of the meet, but there would none more deserving then TWO of Amherst's own, as Carter Hamill and Shauneen Garrahan each won two events, and ran a leg on a runner-up 4x800. Carter won the 5k to start her day, making her decisive move in the last 4 laps to win a "controlled" effort that still yielded an NCAA provisional qualifier, then came back 2 hours later to win a wire to wire 3000 race over William's top runner, Caroline Cretti. Shauneen meanwhile used a big finishing kick in her races to grab victories - first in the 1500, where she pulled away from Cretti of Williams who had beat her the previous week and broke the school record in the process. The second win, was in the 1000 over another strong field, including the fastest 800 runner in the country at this point of the season. The two came back one last time to join with Ginger Polich and Vanessa Sochat to finished 2nd in the 4x800. Ginger had a great race in the 800, as she not only grabbed the runner-up spot, but also qualified provisionally in the 800 and running her best time ever. Maria Millard competed in the pentathlon and had a great day, as she finished 7th with a new school record point total, and got season best in every event for the day. The quartet of Lee-Jay Henry, Julia Rucker, Hannah Campbell and Lyndsey Scott grabbed a runner-up finish in a very tight battle in the 4x400 - getting nipped by Tufts but holding off Williams. Earlier in the day, they won their section in the 4x200 and would grab 5th overall. Lee-Jay lowered her school record again in the 55 Hurdles in the preliminaries, qualifying her for the final, but a fall on the first hurdle negated her chance of an upset win. Heather Wilson and Laura Mortimer each lowered their best times in the 3k, with Heather grabbing points with her 6th place finish. The DMR team of Katie Moravec, Ellie Tarlow, Vanessa and Alison Rodriguez just missed scoring as they finished 9th, despite a great 1600 leg by Alison.

The men were paced by the Distance Medley Relays 3rd place finish, as the team of Jack Morgan, Sam Hayman, Rom Cabeza and Matt Katz ran to their best time of the season and will look to improve this weekend in hopes of making a return trip to Nationals. IN the 800, Jack led the fast section for the majority of the race and would finish 4th overall, while John Babbott would grab an 11th place in the unseeded section of the 800. Matt Katz just missed grabbing points in the 1500, as he finished 9th in a very competitive field. Sam raced to his best time in the 600, finishing 2nd in his section and 14th overall. Tomas Morrissey finished 9th in the 3k, while lowering his personal best. Rich Wilson, Rob Boley, Cooper Knowlton - despite focusing on the distance events - dropped down to the 800 as they joined with John Babbott to finish the day with a 10th finish in the 4x800. Geoff Stricsek, Ben Read, Tim Porter and Jon Ettinger finished their season with a strong run in the 4x400 relay, as they placed 13th.

Tufts Stampede - Feb. 12th (Student)
With a couple of the team across town at BU, it was a chance for others to step up, and with the meet being the last regular season meet before we head into the championships, it was also the last chance for individuals to hit marks needed for the championship meets. For the men, the day started and finished with a victory as Matt Katz set his 3000 best en route to winning his race comfortably. In the days final event - the Distance Medley - the team of John Babbott, Sam Hayman, Rom Cabeza and Tomas Morrissey capped their Saturday with a run away victory. In the middle of all of this action, Babbott secured another victory for himself on the season when he ran a great Mile to win that in 4:22. Rom grabbed a 3rd place in the 600, while Tomas finished 5th in the mile followed by Rich Wilson. Mike Harbus and Rob Boley finished 4th and 9th in the 3k, with each lowering their best times - Boley by an incredible 20 seconds as he had a phenomenal finish to the regular season with 2 huge races in the last 2 meets. Geoff Stricsek grabbed a pair of 10th place finishes with great runs in the 200 and 400 - running to his best times this far.

The women's team was lead by not only the win in the 55 Hurdles by Lee-Jay Henry, but also by the breaking of the school record in that event as she became the first Amherst hurdler to go under 9 seconds when she ran 8.98. She also grabbed a 3rd place finish in the long jump, and an 11th place finish in the 200. Heather Wilson, like she did when she raced the 3k 2 weeks ago, grabbed the win and raced to her fastest 5k, as she sped to an 18:21 in her first crack at the distance on the track. Alison Rodriguez broke the 11 minute barrier in the 3k to qualify for DIII New Englands, en route to her runner-up finish. Hannah Campbell continues to get faster in the sprints, as she raced to her best time of the year in the 55 to finish 3rd and then grabbed 4th in the 200 with her best mark. Laura Mortimer ran another solid race in the mile to grab a 3rd place finish and Julia Rucker grabbed a 6th place in the 400 as her times continue to drop. Vanessa Sochat is quickly returning to form as she grabbed 8th in the 800, and Maria Millar and Nzinga Tyehemba both just barely missed breaking 10 seconds in the 55 hurdles, but clocking seasonal bests., while Lauren Benson finished off her season with her best 600 time of the year and a 10th place finish.

Valentine Classic - Feb. 12th
While the large majority of the team was across the city at the Tufts Stampede, a small contingency was competing at the valentine Classic held at Boston University. The objective was to try and attain NCAA qualifying times and get fast competition - which was met. The women's DMR consisting of Carter Hamill, Lyndsey Scott, Ginger Polich and Shauneen Garrahan secured their berth for nationals as they destroyed the competition and not only won, but were never challenged from the opening gun as they ran to a DIII leading time of 11:53.04. In their second races of the day - their individual races, the ladies looked a bit flat, but still posted PR's and two NCAA marks. Ginger broke 2:18 for the first time, and just missed a provisional mark for NCAA's. In the mile, Shauneen and Carter both raced in the same heat and ran to times of 4:57.41 and 5:02.21 respectively - each hitting the provisional standard. Lyndsey raced to a seasonal best in the 200 with her 27.18.

Jack Morgan, looking for an NCAA mark in the 800, got what he was looking for as he raced a great race in his section of the 800 to win and exciting and well run race. Putting himself in good position form the gun, he used a big kick coming off the turn to move into the lead and hold off all challengers as he lowered his indoor best by nearly 2 seconds in hitting the provisional mark for NCAA's with a 1:53.91. Mike Page raced the 5k on Friday night and raced to a time of 15:01.82.

Tufts Invite #2 - Feb. 5th (Student)
The teams competed against 12 other teams at the 2nd of their three invitational meets at Tufts, and had a great meet as both finished 4th. With the season winding down for some, and the championship portion fast approaching for others, the men and women had one of their best non championship meets in recent memory. A couple of school records, several wins, and lots of PR's were the story of the day. Ginger Polich led the 600 from the gun and won easily in posting a new school record time of 1:38, while Shauneen Garrahan stepped down to the 800 and like Polich, simply ran away from the field to win in a new school record time as well as an NCAA qualifying mark. Carter Hamill would lap the entire race in the 3k to post a fast, non-challenged time, and then the three of them would team up with Heather Wilson ( who has earlier posted a PR time and 5th place finish in the 1500) to easily run away with the 4x800 to cap the meet with a victory. Hannah Campbell grabbed a pair of 3rd places in the 55 and the 200 and in both the 4x200 and 4x400, she would team with Lyndsey Scott, Lee-Jay Henry and Julia Rucker to grab a 2nd in the shorter, and then finish their day with a comfortable win in the longer relay. Lee-Jay would grab a 5th place in the hurdles ,and Lyndsey grabbed 6th in the 400. Maria Millard, completing her pentathlon qualifying, grabbed a 7th place in the high jump. Ellie Tarlow and Nzingha Tyehemba both lowered their 400 times considerably; Alison Rodriguez dropped down to the 1500 and posted a solid mark pulling Laura Mortimer and Sophie Turrell to fast times.

Mike Page won a hotly contested 1500 in a new PR for the lone individual victory for the men, and then joined up with Sam Hayman, John Babbott and Jack Morgan to finished the day with a victory in the 4x800 relay - a race that was not decided until the last straight-away when Jack was able to come from behind on the Tufts anchor leg. Sam grabbed a runner-up spot in the 600, hitting the DIII NE Qualifying to the hundredth of a second. Babbott did not get a great start in the 800, and spent a lot of time trying to maneuver into position but was able to work himself into 3rd place and run to a new PR. Jon Ettinger grabbed a 3rd place in the 400 before anchoring the 4x400 relay of Geoff Stricsek, Tim POrter and Rom Cabeza to a runner-up spot. Both Geoff and Tim had their best 400 races earlier in the day as they grabbed scoring points with their 7th and 8th place finish. Jack Morgan posted a 4th place in the 1000, while Cooper Knowlton would grab a 5th in the 3k as he continues to get healthy from a bout with bronchitis. The men's 5k was the race of the day for Amherst as Mike Harbus, Robert Boley and Nate Freese all got after it right from the start, and in addition to finishing 4th, 5th and 6th they all considerably lowered their best times with Robert and Nate just missing braking the 16 minute barrier by .01 and .78. Matt Katz, not to be outdone by other running new PR's, lowered his 1500 time by 2 seconds when he finished 6th in his race.

Cardinal Invite - Jan 29th (Student)
The team headed down to Wesleyan for their 2nd meet of the year, and while their were a large amount of teams and athletes, the non-scoring meet went great. John Babbott grabbed the lone win on the men's side as he led a wire to wire 1000m to grab his 2nd win on the Wesleyan track this year, while the women were led by a 3 win day from Ginger Polich as she cruised to victories in the 1500 and then a convincing wire to wire run in the 1000 and capped off her busy day by joining with Lee-Jay Henry, Hannah Campbell and Lyndsey Scott to win the 4x400 relay. First year Heather Wilson grabbed her first individual collegiate win as she won the 3k with a strong finish over the last few laps. Other top marks for the women included Lyndsey's near win in the 400 where she was caught at the line but had a great race and looks to be rounding into her All-American form from 2 seasons ago, and she also grabbed 5th in the high jump. Behind Heather in the 3k in 3rd and 4th places were fellow first year Laura Mortimer and captain Alison Rodriguez. Lee-Jay Henry returned to the hurdles and jumps with strong marks in both, as she placed 5th in the 55h (just missing the school record in the process) and 3rd in the long jump. Hannah Campbell placed 6th in the 200 and just missed making the finals in the 55m. Katie Moravec grabbed a 5th in the 1000m, after having placed 9th in the 1500 earlier.

Behind Babbott's victory, the team also got a runner-up finish in the 4x400 as the team of Jon Ettinger, Sam Hayman, Rom Cabeza and Jack Morgan raced together for the first time this season and posted a solid finish. Sam and Rom would go 3-4 earlier in the 600, while Jack would finish 3rd in the 800 in a very exciting home stretch battle with a couple of Trinity runners. Matt Katz, despite a sore leg, grabbed 3rdin the 3k as he led Mike Harbus and Nate Freese to great races as they finished 7th and 9th. Tomas Morrissey grabbed a 4th place in the 1500 and then came back later to win the 2nd section of the 800, while Rob Boley would grab a win in his section of the 800 just after. Evan Guiney finished 5th in the 5k. Rich Wilson finished 9th in the 1500, winning his section decisively in his first race of the year, while Ben Read raced a strong race to easily run away from his competitors in his section of the 600, and Ettinger posted a solid mark in the 400.

Terrier Classic - Jan 28th
While the majority of the team would compete at the Cardinal Invite the next day, Shauneen Garrahan and Carter Hamill headed to BU for an opportunity to run against high caliber of competition and looked for fast times. Shueen raced in the 3k, and while she won her section (the 2nd fastest of the evening) and wound up 11th overall, the race resembled a fartlek workout more then the anticipated fast paced effort. The pace started slowly, and Shauneen took the lead only to have another run sprint in to the lead and then put the brakes on and slowing things down. Shauneen retook the lead, only to have another runner shoot into the lead, and the put the brakes on causing everyone to get backed up - this would continue for the entire race before she finally pulled away in the last lap to grab the win and a new PR. In the 5k, the field was very strong and included some of the top division 1 runners who had earned All-American honors in XC this fall but expectation of a real fast pace quickly did not happen as the race went out strongly but at a conservative pace and Carter raced in a pack of runners who ranged frmo 4-8th, before breaking  away in the last mile with three other girls, and eventually grabbing 4th with a time of 16:43.95 - just off of her school record, but still the top time in DIII this year.

Tufts Invite #1 - Jan 22nd (Student)
The teams wrapped up the intersession period and all of it's double sessions with a great meet at Tufts. While not focusing on the scoring aspect of the meet, the women grabbed 5th while the men finished in 6th of the 12 teams. For the women, the team got individual wins from Shauneen Garrahan in the 1000 and Ginger Polich in the 800 - both immediately took the leads and were never challenged as they raced to very quick times. The two joined up with Lyndsey Scott and Heather Wilson to finish the meet with a victory and an NCAA Provisional time in the Distance Medley Relay. Katie Moravec grabbed a 3rd place in the 3000, while the women's 4 x 200 relay consisting of Lee-Jay Henry, Julia Rucker, Lyndsey Scott and Hannah Campbell easily won their section and grabbed 3rd overall. The same team minus Lyndsey and joined by Maria Millard would grab 4th in the 4x400 at the end of the day. Hannah sprinted to a 4th place finish in the 55, and Alison Rodriguez ran the 5k for the first time indoors and grabbed 4th as well.

Mike Page continued his distance dominance as he broke away from the pack at the mile mark and raced to a convincing win in the 3k for the day's lone win. In the same race, Tomas Morrissey not only grabbed 3rd in a strong field but also lowered his best time by nearly 10 seconds. Jon Ettinger grabbed a 3rd place finish in the 200, and also joined up with Geoff Stricsek, Tim Porter and Steve Shashy to grab a runner-up spot in the 4x200 relay. Sam Hayman grabbed 3rd in the 500m, and then ran the 400 leg of the Distance Medley relay along with John Babbott, Matt katz and Rom Cabeza as they finished 4th. Cooper Knowlton had a great breakthrough in the 5k, as he not only grabbed 4th but broke the 16 minute barrier for the first time, while Mike Harbus grabbed the 8th and final scoring spot. In the mile, Katz and Babbott would finish 6th and 9th in a tight field. The 4x400 relay team of Geoff, Tim, Jon and Ben Read capped their day with a 4th place finish.

Wesleyan Invite #1 - Jan 15
The teams kicked off the New Year with the opening meet of the year with a non scoring, 8 team invitational at Wesleyan. With the small amount of teams, the meet went very quickly and for those who were doubling in events, and did not afford a lot of time for rest so the meet served as a valuable training workout as well as a competitive effort. The meet capped off the first full week of intersession training - we are not in classes until the 24th - and in the meantime, we have been doing two practices a day all week long so the legs and bodies were a little weary. Hannah Campbell grabbed her first collegiate victory with her win in the 200, to go along with a 3rd in the 55 and leading off the 4x400 to a runner-up spot. Shauneen Garrahan earned 2 wins as she doubled in the 1500, 800 and also ran on the 4x800. Carter Hamill grabbed a win in the 3000, after finishing 2nd in the 1500, and Ginger Polich won the 1000m and joined with Laura Mortimer, Lauren Benson and Alison Rodriguez (doubling back from a 3k runner-up finish) to win the 4x800.

For the men, Mike Page returned to competition and ran away with both the 1500 and the 3k, as he lead a 1-3 sweep in both events (Matt Katz and Tomas Morrissey in the 1500) and Dave Molina, Cooper Knowlton and Mike Harbus in the 3k), John Babbott grabbed the win in the 800 and also led the 4x800 team of Tomas, Ben Read and Dave to the win. Evan Guiney captured his first collegiate victory, as he led teammate Rob Boley to a 1-2 sweep in the 5k in a perfectly paced effort. Jack MOrgan grabbed a runner-up spot in the 800, after his 6th place run in the 1500, and also joined with Matt, Rom Cabeza and Billy McNitt to finish 2nd in the 4x800. Jon Ettinger and Rom had a stirring stretch run in the 500m with Jon just edging Rom out at the line. Geoff Stricsek picked up right where he left off before break as he nearly broke his indoor 400 PR and then did lower his 200 best.

Husky Invite - Dec 4
While the large majority of the team will not get underway with the track season until January, a small amount of the team got the 2004-05 season started at the Husky Invite held at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Carter Hamill wasted no time getting her season started as she carried her XC fitness to the track by running under 16:58 to easily win the 5000m, lapping everyone in the race except for 1 person, and get her automatic standard for the NCAA's out of the way. Hannah Campbell made her track debut successful as she turned in solid marks in the 55 and 200 placing 19th and 39th, as well as joining up with Julia Rucker, Sophie Turrell and Lyndsey Scott to run the 4x400. Lyndsey posted fast times in the 400 (placing 14th) and 200, and Julia also competed in both of the longer sprints grabbing 31st in the 400. Ellie Tarlow and Sophie each competed for the first time as Ellie race in the dash and 200, while Sophie grabbed 18th in the 800.

The men, like the women, were very small in numbers, but they turned in good opening marks. Jon Ettinger and Tim Porter grabbed 18th and 22nd respectively in the 500. Geoff Stricsek lowered his indoor bests in both the 200 and 400 and looks to make considerable improvement form his first year results. Rom Cabeza and Sam Hayman raced in the same heat of the 800, with Sam doing the early pace work as he led through 3 laps and then Rom putting on a couple of steps at the end as they both ran 2:03, and Ben Read, in the same event but a later heat had a strong race to cap his fall. Jon, Tim, Rom and Sam joined forces in the 4x400 to run 3:34 and win their section in a thrilling come form behind win.
