Meet Recap

The teams headed to Springfield for the ECAC Championships, and for the majority of those competing, the last opportunity to compete for the year. As the meet came at the end of our final exam period, and sleep and mental focus would be at a premium, the athletes hoped for the best out of their events. On Thursday, Spencer Russell closed out his season by running the hurdles into a very stiff head wind and while not abel to improve upon his time, he improved upon his seeding coming into the meet, just missing making the finals on Friday. The other event we had on Thursday was the steeplechase, and Zandra Walton finished out her Amherst career by running her best time of the year and finishing 6th in 11:25 while Sophie Galleher just missed grabbing the final scoring spot, as she would finish 9th. Peter Foote grabbed a 6th place finish in his last steeplechase race for Amherst. On Friday's competition, Melissa Sullivan provided the brightest spot for the team as she grabbed 7th in the 800, dipping under her PR and just missing breaking the 2:17 barrier and then came back to join with Carly Levenson, Mary Doris Reggie and Susie Wasserman in the 4x400 as they nearly broke 4:00 minutes, knocked over 2 seconds from their best time of the season and grabbed a 7th place finish, and the race saw Mary Doris run her first sub 60 second carry. As the day got later, the temps started to climb and by the time the 5k's rolled around, the middle 80 degree day would not provide ideal conditions for racing and while the times suffered, those in the events competed well as Hallie Schwab grabbed a 6th place finish, followed closely by Liz Dalton - running her final race for AMherst - just missed out on scoring with her 9th place finish. The men's race saw Daniel Murner cruise to a 4th place finish while carlyle Eubank held on admirably to finish 7th. Susie, before anchoring the 4x400 relay grabbed 15th in the 400 hurdles. Steve Corsello and Jimmy Swanson were a little off their game in the 1500 and finished 11th and 13th respectively. The relays for the men did not go as well as hoped, and perhaps the toll of the week's studying and papers would be to blame, but in the 4x100 relay the team was unable to get the baton around, and then in the 4x400 a dropped baton at the first exchange took the team out of the race and while they would pick it up and try to get back into it, the hole had been dug pretty deep and they had to settle for a 3:26. Having a little bit left in the tank, Andrew Reed and Anthony Fuller took to the track just before the time trial for Ben Scheetz and Kit Callahan (1:56 and 1:59) and raced a 100m with Reed coming out on top with an 11.1 to Train's 11.2.
