Meet Recap:

Performer of the Meet - Khalil Fleming

The men's track & field team kicked off the 2013-14 campaign by heading across the river to Smith College, and getting things under way at the Smith Invite. While many of those guys who raced XC this fall did not compete, it provided a great opportunity for those who have been working real hard in the weight room and out on the track this fall to shake the rust off, and test their legs out. Being the first meet, and approached in a low-key manner, expectations were kept to a minimum with the emphasis focused on competing and getting a good gauge of where we were at. Senior Matt Melton grabbed the days lone victory for the team in the days strongest event for Amherst, as he ran from the front in the 600 to grab a win in 1:23.91 leading Brent Harrison, who finished 2nd in 1:25.93, and Nick Codola and Alex Durkee who finished 4th and 5th. Khalil Fleming grabbed 5th in the 60m, running a PR of 7.34 in the finals after advancing to the final with his 7.40 time. Perhaps even bigger then his PR in the dash was what he did in the triple jump where he jumped out over the 13 meter mark for the first time ever - grabbing 3rd with a 13.02 before launching a huge jump on his final attempt that was barely a foul (but still a foul yes) but providing some great confidence nonetheless. His jumping partners, Mark Cort and Steve Hetterich grabbed 4th and 5th in the triple jump while Mark nearly broke 21 feet in the long jump, placing 7th to lead the team in that event. A quartet of freshmen got after it in the mile, and despite taking a two week break after the XC season, they still showed some great strength and toughness. Kevin Connors would lead the way with his 4th place finish in 4;30.81 while Ben Fiedler came next in 4:30.90 and then Steve Lucey and Jesse Fajnzylber would come in 8th and 9th. Lucas Lebovitz grabbed a 4th place finish in the 800, running 2:03 while KC Fussell nearly PR'd in the 400 en route to his 7th place finish of 2:07. Dennis Kennelly lead the team in the 200 with his 24.02 and 7th place finish overall while Javy Paulino would finish a tick behind in 24.09 and 9th, with freshmen Josh Young coming through in 13th - the two of them finishing in the same exact time of 7.44 in the 60m earlier in the day. Sam Wohlforth wrapped up the day for the team with his 7th place finish in the 3000, running a time of 9:53. A bit of a break from competing for now, as the team will not return to competitive action until January 18th and will shift focus to kicking butt in final exams and papers that are looming on the horizon.
