Athlete of the Meet - Harrison Lakehomer'09 and The Women's Team

With the invitational / regular portion of the season finished, the teams headed into the Championship season, with both teams heading to maine for the DIII New England's - the women heading to USM and the men to Bates. The women were looking to continue their streak of finishing in the Top 3, and hoped, despite a significant number disadvantage, to challenge for a Top 2 finish. When the dust had settled, and the day was over, the squad finished 3rd with 93 points - the most ever scored by an Amherst team and only a few points shy of the runner-up spot. They started and finished the day in the same way - with a win. The DMR of Sophie Galleher, Mary Doris Reggie, Molly Priedeman and Caitlin Murphy raced great and held off all others to grab the win. The 4x800 relay of Molly, Caitlin, Shauneen Garrahan and Maria Millard finished the day with a come from behind victory to bookend the championship in winning style. Elise Tropiano grabbed the lone individual victory for the team, as she won the 5k in an NCAA provisional qualifying time of 17:24, and the event would prove to be the most successful for the team as Nicole Anderson (3rd), Katie Moravec (5th) and Laura Mortimer (6th) would all run to their best times of the year en route to racking up 23 points. Elise would return later in the day to grab 5th place points in the 3k, an event in which Heather Wilson returned to Championship form in grabbing 3rd lace, just missing breaking the 10 minute barrier. Maria just missed breaking the school record in the 600, as she ran to a great time of 1:36.30 and grabbed runner-up honors, and she would warm-up for the event by joining with Hannah Campbell, Carly Levenson and Kate Silverman in the 4x200 where they finished 6th. Shauneen finished 2nd in a very tight battle in the mile, and then came back to finish 3rd in the 1000, while Sophie would run to a 10th place finish in that. Caitlin, in the middle of her winning relay legs, also grabbed valuable 3rd place points in the 800 in a smart, tactical race. The 4x400 relay of Hannah, M ary Doris, Carly and Kate grabbed a 3rd place finish in that event, and on the day, the relay teams accounted for an impressive 29 points of the teams total. Jennifer Rybak completed her first collegiate pentathlon, placing 6th overall and clearing 5'0 in the high jump, significantly improving upon her jumps from earlier in the season.

The men were led by Harrison Lakehomer's 3rd place finish in the 5k - an event that took until well after the meet to sort out (and still having problems with the actual results) due to a clock and lap malfunction. With a lot of the team battling illness - either the onset or trying to shake it - the efforts were great, but the results were not necessarily indicative of it. Basile Beaty grabbed 4th in the 600, while Sam Hayman would grab the final scoring spot in the 800 with his 8th place finish. The 2 would join Keith Pendergrass and Thomas Foote to finish 11th in the 4x400. The 4x800 team also grabbed the final scoring place, as Rom Cabeza led off with a solid opener, and then Eric Glustrom, Jimmy Swanson and Will Bell finished it off with their best time of the season. Will was just outside of the scoring in the mile but did run to a new PR, while Jimmy was a few steps behind him. The DMR battled some very bad luck, as lead-off leg, Jack Kiley got tripped up in the middle of his race and would get up and run valiantly, but we were not able to really get back into the race yet, still managed to place 10th as Steve Stewart, Kit Callahan and Carlyle Eubank tried to reel in the other teams.
