Meet Recap

Athlete of the Meet - Harrison Lakhomer '09 & Caitlin McDermott-Murphy'09

The teams headed to Wesleyan to compete against other NE, NY, Pennsylvania and New Jersey schools in the ECAC Championships. With this being the final meet, aside from NCAA's next weekend, both teams were looking to wrap up a very successful indoor campaign. The women finished 6th overall, while the men finished 36th. The women, as they did at the DIII New England's, got a nice start to the meet in the 5k where Nicole Anderson and Katie Moravec grabbed 4th and 5th, with Laura Mortimer just outside the scoring places in 9th. Shauneen Garrahan tuned up for the NCAA Championships by lowering her own school record in the 1000 by over 2 seconds, finishing 2nd overall. In the same race, but in the unseeded section, Caitlin Murphy led wire to wire, running under 3:00 for the first time and winning her section by over 6 seconds. Sophie Galleher ran the 3000, and lowered her best time while placing 5th. In the 4x400, the relay team of Carly Levenson, Caitlin, Hannah Campbell and Maria Millard grabbed a 5th place finish. Before running the relay, Maria finished 10th in the 400 - again, just off of the school record performance. Carly finished 8th in the 500, while in an earlier section of the event, Kate Silverman ran her 2nd best time to finish 23rd overall. The men were led by Harrison Lakehomer's 4th place effort in the 3000 and the 7th & 8th place finishes in the 1000 by first year runners Tommy Anderson and Jimmy Swanson. Rom Cabeza just missed scoring in the 800 but did register another sub 2:00 run, while basile Beaty was also just out of the scoring in the 500 with a strong run in that event. Rom and Basile, joined with Keith Pendergrass and Sam Hayman to finish 14th in the 4x400, while the 4x800 team of Steve Stewart, Eric Glustrom, Kit Callahan and John Babbott missed scoring by one place, as they finished 9th.
