Meet Recap:

Performer of the Meet - Thomas Matthew

The nearly full contingent of guys headed down the Interstate to compete at the Yellow jacket Invite held at American International College in Springfield in what would be a rather windy, chilly and long day. Despite the not so wonderful conditions, the guys competed great and posted many strong marks across the board. Matt Melton grabbed the top finishing spot for the Jeffs as he grabbed a runner-up finish in the 400, running a 49.37 to open up his season and then also grabbed a scoring spot in the 200 with a 22.81 clocking. Thomas Matthew had a great meet as he anchored the 4x100 relay of Josh Young, Javy Paulino and Dennis Kennelly to a section win in 44.84 to start the day and then raced to a new PR of 11.29 in the 100 and another PR later in the 200, dipping under 23 seconds in a 22.98. Khalil Flemming woke up his competitive demon and triple jumped to a 4th place finish with a 45+ foot jump to start the season, along with an outdoor PR in the long jump earlier in the day, as well as a very strong run in the 100 to finish just ahead of teammates Josh and Javy - while also in the jumps, Steve hetterich was out over 6 meters in the long and over 40 feet in the triple. Sam Wohlforth had a great run in the 5k, knocking off consistent sub 80 second laps before starting to drop further in the last 1000 to run a 16:29 while in the next section, KC Fussell raced into the twilight, grabbing a 3rd place running 15:22 just off the pace set by the front 2 runners. Most of the other middle and long distance runners got their season started in the 1500 and despite the chilly wind, opened things up on a great note. Nick Codola ran a 4:22 in the early section and then came back shortly after in the 400 to work on speed; the next section saw Ben Fiedler ran a Usain Bolt-like last 100m to close up a seemingly insurmountable gap and grab the win right at the line running 4:10 while Jesse Fajnzylber and Raymond Meijer each went 4:17. Kevin Connors took the top spot in the next section with a strong finish,as he ran 4:06 and would come back with a strong 800 a little later in the day. In the next section of the 1500, Dan Crowley would finish 2nd in the heat running a new PR in 4:01.40 with Jeff Seelaus coming through in 4:05 and Brent Harrison stepping up in distance to run a 4:08 - and then come back in the 400 to run a great 51.65 afterwards; while in the final and fastest section of the 1500 Greg Turissini would start his season with a 4:01 clocking in a very competitive field. Jamie Sandel made his foray in the world of 400 Hurdling successful as he grabbed a win in his section, and placed 7th overall with his 58.91 clocking. Dennis, in addition to a strong 3rd leg in the relay, had a nice 200 as he ran 23.40 in his first 200 of the year. Romey Sklar had the top time of the day for the team in the 800, just barley missing breaking 2 minutes as got his season started. On the other end of the track, Josiah Terrell-Perica opened with a 185 foot throw which would place him 7th but an awkward plant on his 2nd throw shut him down for the day after that.
