Meet Recap:

Performer of the Meet -Steven Lucey

The guys got 2014 kicked off at Tufts, in a 16 team invitational, and despite the heavy legs from the first 2 weeks of intersession they grabbed a runner-up finish. With each day combining a morning practice and then coming back for an afternoon practice, the focus on the meet was simply to compete hard despite the weariness of the bodies. With the minds strong now, it will provide great opportunities down the road when we are not working as long and hard as we have been and keeping things real simple for the first meet proved great for the men. A pair of first years grabbed their first ever collegiate wins as Steven Lucey used a blistering last lap in the 800 to grab a win, running under 1:59 while Ben Fiedler, took charge of the 5k in the final laps after some great teamwork with Jeff Seelaus, Ray Meijer and Gus Greenstein saw everyone taking turns leading at 800 intervals, and the purple and black went on to a 1-4 sweep. Khalil Fleming grabbed the other individual victory as he locked up the win in the triple jump on his final attempt, sailing well out over 43 feet to set a big PR. To put a great cap on the day, the 4x800 relay of Romey Sklar, Lucas Lebovitz, Jesse Fajnzylber and Steve held on for an exciting win to head onto the bus on a winning note. Matt Melton got our hard in the 400, finishing 2nd in a 50.45 then anchored the 4x400 team of Judd Liebman, Nick Codola and Brent Harrison to a 3rd place finish. In the 3k, KC Fussell, Dan Crowley and Charlie Reighard traded places each 600, as they focused on running 4:45 pace before taking the restrictions off in the final laps with all 3 running under 8:55. The 1000 saw a large field that was pretty physical, and the guys got bumped around and didn't put themselves in the best position and paid for it later in the race but Romey made the best of it, coming through in 4th with a 2:36 and Lucas coming in 6th. In the unseeded section, Alex Durkee grabbed the lead after the 1st lap and ran away from the field in a nice PR time of 2:43. Mark Cort grabbed points in the long jump before coming back in the 200, and despite barely staying on the track on the far turn, was still able to grab a 7th place finish with the teams fastest time for the day. In addition to the TJ win, Khalil grabbed points in the Long jump as well and had the days fastest time for the team in the 60 - just missing the finals with his 7.30 with Josh coming in just behind at 7.43. While not factoring into the scoring, some other very impressive results saw Cole Hawkins having one his best, and most complete races on the track as he ran a 9:33 for the 3k; Dennis Kennelly - still coming back from a shoulder injury looked great in his 4x400 leg; Judd finished 10th in the 600 in his first race back since early in the outdoor season. We head into the final week of intersession, with classes resuming this Thursday, and will back off the workload in anticipation of some big performances this coming weekend at the Terrier Classic at Boston University on Saturday
