Performers of the Meet: Ben Scheetz '12 and Ali Simeone '13

On a clear Friday afternoon, a contingent of Lord Jeff runners and jumpers traveled to Boston to compete in the collegiate division of the Boston Indoor Games.  In the face of stiff and fierce competition, a number of Jeffs, particularly among the men, performed notably.  In the men’s mile, senior Jimmy Swanson grabbed an 8th place scoring position with a 4:20.91, eight-lap trip around the oval, and in the men’s 400m dash, junior Andre Gary notched a 7th-place finish overall from the second heat in just over 52 seconds, leading from the gun.  Junior Tommy Moore posted another outstanding finish for the Lord Jeff men in the 500m run, crossing the line in 1:07.34 – good enough for 8th place, and a PR of just over two and a half seconds.  In the women’s 800m run, sophomore Melissa Sullivan placed 5th with a 2:17.83 PR.  She led the Amherst crew of five 800m women, which included senior captains Hoiwan Cheung and Mary Doris Reggie, who continued their streak of close finishes: Cheung in 2:21.38 and Reggie on her shoulder in 2:21.65.  The times represent meaningful improvement over last year’s in the event for both women.  In the men’s 800m run, Amherst veritably stole the show.  For nearly 700 meters, sophomore Ben Scheetz dueled for the lead with Maine’s Miles Bartlett, fending off two strong, mid-race moves.  Although Scheetz ultimately fell to second place, he clocked in at 1:54.93, an indoor PR and nearly an NCAA provisional qualifying time.  Following Scheetz were first year Patrick Grimes, crossing 1:57.94 for 5th place, and senior captain Kit Callahan, who placed 9th in 2:00.03.  The Jeffs grabbed points again in the men’s 1000m run, in which junior Steve Corsello placed 5th with an official time of 2:32.06.  The women’s 3000m run featured another large Amherst crew.  First year Ali Simeone’s 10:26.01, 11th place finish led the group of five runners.  In the final individual event of the day, Amherst harriers Dan Murner and Will Yochum provided fireworks in the men’s 5000m run.  Murner performed strongly from the gun, maintaining good positioning throughout the race.  Late in the race, when it looked as if Murner would fade, teammate Yochum hit his stride in a slow climb from the trailing pack to the lead pack and eventually into the lead.  Then, with 200 meters remaining in the race, Murner, not to be outdone, unleashed a vicious kick and propelled himself to the win placing first overall to Yochum’s second 14:52.37 to 14:52.47.  As the day closed, the Jeffs proved no less impressive in the relays than in the open events.  The women’s DMR team of Keri Lambert, Susie Wasserman, Hoiwan Cheung, and Melissa Sullivan grabbed fourth with a 12:19.06, capped by Sullivan’s 5:03 mile leg, while both men’s DMRs finished top eight.  In the 4x400m relay, the Amherst men’s team comprising Tommy Moore, Andre Gary, Ben Scheetz, and Andrew Reed nearly edged cross-town D1 rival UMass but ultimately finished behind them in 3rd, nevertheless running a solid 3:23.57 led by a 48.8 third leg from Scheetz.  Finally, it was a quiet day in the field for the Jeffs, but junior Thebe Tsatsimpe did merit 3rd place in the long jump with a 6.69m effort.
