As the 2009-2010 indoor track and field season fast draws to a close, the Amherst College Lord Jeffs traveled to nearby Smith College to compete in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Championships.  Action started early Friday afternoon as sophomore Spencer Russell capped an outstanding sophomore campaign with a 6th-place finish in the 55m hurdles, clocking a time of 7.91 – a personal record by nearly a tenth of a second.  The following afternoon, sophomore Ben Scheetz and junior Steve Corsello continued in form, grabbing points in the 800m run.  The two finished 4th and 8th in 1:55.36 and 1:56.21.  In the longer distances, junior Will Yochum sharpened up for the national competition, dropping down to the 1000m run, which he won going away in 2:29.49, and first-year Andrew Erskine wrapped up his first indoor season with an impressive 5th-place finish in the 3000m run in 8:43.74.  The weekend’s relay highlight came from the men’s 4x400 squad comprising Andrew Reed, Tommy Moore, Kit Callahan, and Adron Pitmon, which placed 6th, led by the sophomore Reed, who finally unleashed the beast and ran the aggressive initial leg we all knew he had.  In the field, junior Thebe Tsatsimpe leaped into 6th place in the long jump competition with a 6.72m effort.

On the women’s side, senior captain Sophie Galleher and first year Ali Simeone started the weekend strongly in the 5000m run, placing 4th and 5th.  Both women ran NCAA provisional qualifying times, the former in 17:39.83 and the latter in 17:41.14.  Saturday’s events saw continued excellent performances.  Melissa Sullivan ran 2:15.43 to take second in the 800m run, leading teammates Mary Doris Reggie and Keri Lambert.  Senior captain Hoiwan Cheung took home points in the 1000m run, finishing 6th, while first-year Lauren Almeida ran a PR at the same distance, after having run an excellent 1200 leg of the DMR the previous afternoon.  Junior Susie Wasserman notched 5th in the 500, making the turn in 1:20.04.  In the meet’s final open event, the 3000m run, Galleher returned to the track, joined by first year Sarah Daly.  The two finished 2nd and 3rd in 10:26.10 and 10:32.90.  The women’s 4x800m team of Sullivan, Cheung, Reggie, and Almeida provided the relay highlights, winning the event in a convincing, comfortable manner.
