Performers of the Meet: Men's 4x400m Relay and Rebecca Alizzi '13

As the invitational portion of Amherst’s season drew to a close, the Lord Jeff men’s and women’s track teams ventured once again to the state capitol, this time to test their mettle at Boston University’s Valentine Invitational.  Amherst’s competitive weekend got underway Friday afternoon with the women’s 500m run, in which junior Susie Wasserman and senior captain “Ragin’ Cajun” Mary Doris Reggie finished within three tenths of a second of one another 1:19.37 to 1:19.66 to place 15th and 21st.  Action continued in the women’s mile with a field of five Lord Jeffs.  Sophomore Melissa Sullivan led the charge in 4:58.91, good for 16th place and an NCAA provisional qualifying time in the event.  In the women’s 800m run, senior captain Hoiwan Cheung ran to a PR of 2:20.64.  Further highlights for the Jeffs would be found in the 5000m run.  Freshman Ali Simeone placed 16th in 17:55.70 to lead a field of six Amherst runners, including first year Rebecca Alizzi, who capped her season with an outstanding race to clock in at 19:26.46.  In the evening’s relays, first year Jade McKnight teamed with Sullivan, Reggie, and Wasserman for a 4:01.58 turn in the 4x400.

Friday night also featured the first event of the men’s meet: the distance medley relay.  Juniors Steve Corsello and Tommy Moore teamed with sophomore Ben Scheetz and senior Jimmy Swanson to clock a 10:00.90 for a 5th place finish and an NCAA provisional qualifying time.  In the men’s 400m dash, the Lord Jeffs posted three times under 51 seconds as sophomore Andrew Reed, and juniors Tommy Moore and Andre Gary crossed in 50.39, 50.49, and 50.82.  Senior Keith Pendergrass took advantage of the venue to run a substantial indoor PR at 52.21.  The men’s mile saw excellent performances from junior Steve Corsello and first year Pat Grimes.  Corsello completed his run in 4:14.79, an indoor PR and provisional qualifying time and Grimes notched a PR of his own at 4:19.19.  The 800m run saw Scheetz nab another provo time – but just barely – with his 19th place 1:54.19.  In one of the day’s more exciting events, the Danimal left his mark on the oval.  Senior captain Dan Murner took the men’s 5000m run with a 28-second final lap to cross the finish line in a smoking 14:24.22.  The time represents an NCAA automatic qualifying time and the fastest DIII time in the nation.  He also crushed his own school record by some 23 seconds.  Last, but in no way, shape, or form least, in Saturday’s relays, Moore, Gary, Reed, and Scheetz teamed in the 4x400m relay to place 13th in 3:18.48, highlighted by Scheetz’s 47.56 split.  The team’s time shattered the previous school record of 3:21.85 and represents yet another NCAA provisional qualifier.
