Meet Recap: Performer of the Meet - Romey Sklar

The men the long trek to Colby for the DIII New England Championships, and one couldn't ask for better conditions for a track meet. After a rough start on Friday in the hammer, with neither Denzel or Josiah able to get themselves mark, things got better on the 2nd day. The 800 was the event of the day for the team as we went 3 for 3 in the PR department. Romey Sklar - coming in with the slowest qualifying time and competing in the first section, went through the first 400 in 56.2 and then took the lead at the 300 mark and never looked back as he grabbed the section win and a big PR of 1:54.66. 2 sections later, Pat Grimes and Brent Harrison lined up together and using Romey's race as momentum they got out hard - Grimey in 54.1 and Brent 54.7 then 600 in 1:23.2 and 1:24 and came home in 1:52.98 for Grimey and Brent dipping under 1:55 with his 1:54.79. Matt Melton grabbed a new PR with his 3rd place finish in the 400, running 48.63 and then also grabbed another PR in the 200 running 22.69. Josiah shook off the effects of the Hammer in a REAL big way in the Javelin as he launched his first throw over 10 feet beyond his PR and not only set a new PR but also came out of the unseeded flight to grab a 5th place finish -also having another mid 55 meter bomb. Charlie Reighard had a great race in the steeplechase as he easily won the unseeded section in a 20+ second PR - running 9:43 and looking like a seasoned veteran in the water pit. Dan Crowley would be at 10:00 in the same heat, and then Greg Turissini would finish 11th overall from the seeded section in a 9:42. Andrew Erskine challenged both Mother Nature's heat and Conn College's Mike Leduc in the 5k but ended up on the short of both sticks but was able to hang on valiantly, and throw down a strong finish in the last 100m to grab a 7th place finish in 15:00, while Dillon was bested by the heat a bit as well, coming home in 15:33. The 4x800 relay grabbed a 4th place in the unseeded section, and then excitedly watched the seeded section's 5th place teams and beyond come in after their time so that they picked up the final scoring points with their 7:55 that saw Matt Woop lead off in 1:58.8, followed by Greg in 1:59, Jeff with a 55 second opening 400 to bring him to a hard fought 1:57.8 and Romey bringing it home in 1:59.
