Meet Recap

Performer of the Meet - Susie Wasserman'11 and Peter Harrison'11

Our second meet of the season featured better weather—not quite 75 and sunny, but less wind than the previous Saturday, and temperatures in the 50s. Peter Foote picked up a win early on, leading wire-to-wire in the steeplechase and finishing in 9:51.60, which qualifies him for most of the post-season meets. Elise Tropiano was the top collegiate runner (second only to former teammate Shauneen Garrahan) in the 10,000, and was followed by another teammate, Heather Wilson. The three worked together, running conservatively early on before picking up the pace at the end. Tropiano’s time of 37:13.58 is a provisional NCAA qualifying time. Wilson took a break from writing her thesis (it’s a challenging time of year for many of Amherst’s seniors) to finish third in 37:53.02. First-year Christina Wong made her 10,000m debut, running 40:50.58 and finishing seventh. On the men’s side, Mike Harbus found a nice pack to run with for the first 5+ miles, before running away from them in the final mile and finishing second in 33:06.49. Susan Wasserman made her collegiate debut in the 400 hurdles a successful one, winning the event in 69.46. Kate Silverman made it a 1-2 for Amherst, finishing close behind in 69.94. Jenny Mancino (8th, 1:12.23) and Zoe Pagonis (12th, 1:16.68) also ran well. Peter Harrison and Jimmy Swanson turned in another impressive 1-2 finish against a competitive field in the men’s 1,500. Harrison dipped under 4:00 with a 3:59.73, and Swanson narrowly missed doing so, finishing in 4:00.09. The duo returned in the 800, with Swanson leading the way this time, finishing third in 1:59.53 and Harrison finishing fourth in 1:59.77. The women’s 400 was another strong event for Amherst, with Carly Levenson finishing a very close second (60.55) to a fellow All-American, and Mary Doris Reggie taking third in 61.77. Levenson later led the 200 meter runners as well, finishing fourth in 28.08. Anthony Fuller led the male sprinters, taking 10th in the 100 in 11.86. In the women’s 1,500, Zandra Walton led the way for Amherst, taking third in 4:48.83. Kristen Ballinger closed well to take fourth in 4:53.64. Hallie Schwab took ninth (5:05.41), Caitlin McDermott-Murphy (12th, 5:09.05) continued her comeback, Mercedes Taylor improved her time from the previous week by seven seconds (15th, 5:16.47) and Nicole Green took 21st (5:21.99). In the men’s 400 hurdles, Ryan Drost, a 300 hurdler in high school, made a smooth transition to the college distance and finished fifth in 58.90. Amherst had more representatives than usual in the field events, with the shot put going particularly well. Ryan Bone took sixth in the men’s shot with a throw of 41-1.5. Chris Eaton made a significant improvement over his previous week’s performance, finishing eighth with a throw of 39-1.75. On the women’s side, Sarah Leyman, a basketball player in the winter who did not throw in high school, made a strong debut for Amherst, finishing seventh with a mark of 33-1.75. She later finished 11th in the hammer and 19th in the discus. Jennifer Rybak had a solid day in the field events as well, finishing fourth in the long jump (15-5) and second in the high jump (4-11). Jenny Mancino also jumped 4-11, and finished fourth on jumps. Back at the track, Melissa Pritchard and Cara Giaimo ran their first track 5ks, finishing second (19:37.40) and sixth (20:02.23), respectively. In the relays, Amherst cleaned up, winning the women’s 4x400 (Levenson, Silverman, Reggie, and Wasserman—4:06.13), women’s 4x800 (Hoiwan Cheung, Ballinger, McDermott-Murphy, and Walton—9:43.68), and men’s 4x800 (Swanson, Harrison, Tom Anderson, and Kit Callahan—8:13.34), and taking third in the men’s 4x400 (Drost, Keith Pendergrass, Ben Read, and Steve Shashy—3:45.97).
