Performers of the Meet: Carlyle Eubank '10 and Sarah Daly '13

Now in the thick of championship season, a contingent of Lord Jeff men and women traveled to Boston University on Friday and Saturday to compete in Open New England Championships.  The weekend’s events saw a number of PRs and NCAA marks.  Friday’s action saw senior captain Kit Callahan and first year Adron Pitmon compete in the trial heats of the men’s 800m run.  The former ran a PR in 1:56.60 and the latter continued on while path of improvement with a 1:57.39 following an illness-borne absence of much of the indoor season.  In the men’s 1000m, first-year Patrick Grimes turned his five-lap effort in a personal best 2:31.78, which merited 12th place overall.  In the men’s 5000m run, senior Carlyle Eubank and first year Andrew Erskine earned 5th and 15th place finishes in 14:49.22 and 15:10.87.  Both times represent substantial PRs, and Eubank’s time earned him a close NCAA provisional mark.  On the women’s side, senior Sophie Galleher took the unseeded 5,000m run in 17:46.77, lapping the entire field with the exception of first-year teammate Sarah Daly, who finished second in the heat in 18:18.24.  As on the men’s side for the Lord Jeffs, both the senior and first year ran to personal records.  In the evening’s relay action, the men’s DMR team of juniors Steve Corsello and T-Time Moore, sophomore Ben Scheetz, and senior Jimmy Swanson dashed to an NCAA automatic qualifying time of 9:56.73, 3rd overall, bolstered by Corsello’s Herculean 3:00.6 split in the 1200 leg.  The time sets a new school record by some three seconds.  The women’s DMR team comprising senior captains Hoiwan Cheung and Mary Doris Reggie, junior Susie Wasserman, and sophomore Melissa Sullivan merited their own NCAA qualifying mark, a provisional 12:00.83, brought home by Sullivan’s 4:54.6 anchor leg split.

Saturday’s open events were book ended for the Jeffs by two first year women.  Keri Lambert was the first Lord Jeff to take the track and opened the day in appropriate fashion with 5:16.03 PR effort in the unseeded section of the women’s mile.  In the seeded section of the same distance, sophomore Melissa Sullivan also ran a PR to take 6th place in 4:58.02.  In the men’s seeded section of the mile, junior Will Yochum ran a blazing 4:09.41 to place 4th overall and meet an NCAA automatic qualifying mark.  First year Ali Simeone was the final competitor in the open events for the Lord Jeffs and closed the day in appropriate fashion with a 10:08.73, 8th-place finish – and PR to boot – in the women’s 3,000m.  Saturday’s relays featured the men’s and women’s 4x800 and 4x400 with three of the Lord Jeffs’ four teams scoring points.  The men’s 4x800 grabbed 8th, led by a 1:55.8 anchor leg from Callahan, while then men’s 4x400 took 6th, and the women’s 4x800 held on to their own 8th-place mark.
