Meet Recap:

Performers of the Meet - Brent Harrison and Mark Cort

The guys stayed local, heading down the road to Springfield College for a 10 team invitational, and finishing in 4th place. The meet was a good opportunity to drop down in events for a lot of guys, and focus on competing rather than worrying about times or marks. Matt Melton grabbed the day's lone victory - in what arguably be the best event on the day for the team - in the 600, as he led the 1st lap thru in 25.9 with Brent Harrison right on his heels, and then coming thru the 400 Brent took the lead in 54.2 but it was Matt using the kick in the last part of the race to pull away with Brent coming thru in 2nd as they ran 1:22 and 1:23 while Nick Codola would grab points in 5th at 1:24. In the earlier heats, Alex Durkee ran a strong race to finish 2nd in his heat in a 1:26.6 and Jamie Sandel would finish in the same place in his section - after having "warmed up" for the race with his first crack at the 60 Hurdles running 9.30.. Mark Cort wasted no time at all in the long jump to take his mad skills to another level. as on his very first jumped launched a bomb of 6.88m - or 22-7 in feet, and then followed up with 3 other jumps well over his prior best. Khalil Flemming was just over 6m while Steve Hetterich just missed breaking that. Later in the Triple Jump, it would be Khalil's time to once again, push his PR out even further as he lowered the boom on 45 feet for the first time - getting out to 45-2 and finishing 3rd, while Steve would grab a 7th place finish with his best mark of the season. Lucas Lebovitz grabbed a runner-up spot in the 800, making a strong move at the 400 to close the gap to the leaders and challenging for the win, while Romey would grab points, coming in shortly after in 6th. Judd Liebman would also grab a runner-up finish, grabbing 2nd in the 400 running 53.13. Greg Turissini got his indoor season started off with a fast mile, running 4:17 to grab 3rd before then joining with Brent, Matt and Romey to grab a runner-up finish in the DMR. Also in the mile, Ben Fiedler just missed breaking 4:30 as he finished in 7th with a 4:30.25 and then came back for good measure, and a test of speed and won his heat in the1000, with Kevin Connors finishing just behind him in his first race back from injury. The sprinters took a crack at the 4x200 Relay to get their day started, as Thomas Matthew, Javier Paulino, Dennis Kennelly and Mark would finish 4th with a 1:36.22. Josh Young would grab team honors in the 60m dash as he ran 7.47 but than Javy turned the tables on the group with the fastest mark in the 200. Cole Hawkins and Sam Wohlforth tackled the 5k for the first time, and working together for the majority of the race, and close proximity for the entirety, came through in 7th and 8th place running 16:38 and 16:41. Several of the distance guys took the weekend off from racing, and focused on training and a great workout on Friday, but with Valentine Classic at BU on tap for the coming weekend, the entire team will be in action and looking for big marks on Saturday.
