Meet Recap:

Performer of the Meet - KC Fussell

The men headed up to Maine for the NESCAC Championships being hosted by Colby College. While the sun was not around to warm things up - nor was there any attempt by Mother nature to help that - the competition of the conference meet certainly provided a lot of heat. The 10k was the first event to get started for the team, and would also prove to be the best event on the day as KC Fussell and Raymond Meijer would toe the line and came through with big races. Both did a great job of establishing themselves where they needed to be - with Fuss in the front quarter - hitting mile splits of 4:56, 9:47 and 14:48 while Raymond would lead his pack through splits of 5:11, 12:23 and 15:35 through the first half of the race. Fuss would run with a Tufts runner through 8k in 24:58 and then moved in the last couple of laps to come through in a big PR of 31:05 to get 3rd while Raymond came through the 8k in 25:54 and finished 9th in a 32:06 in his 10k debut. While the boys were getting through their 25 laps of track time, Mark Cort was getting dirty in the long jump pit and sitting in 4th with a final attempt left, he got his best jump of the day on the final attempt to grab a runner-up finish with a 6.63 while Steve Hetterich would get out over 6 meters but missed finals. Steve would get his name in the scoring results later in the day when he placed 6th in a rainy and wet triple jump, getting out near 42 feet. The 1500 was a strong event as Romey Sklar used a punishing final kick to grab the final scoring spot in 8th with his 4:0054 race, while in the section before him - Kevin Connors and Jeff Seelaus would each throw down big races, coming through in 4:01.28 and 4:01. 53 respectively while Sam Wohlforth would finish his season with a PR of 4:17.33. Matt Melton grabbed 5th place in the 400 running 49.91 and would anchor th e4x400 to a 6th place as he joined with Nick Codola, Jamie Sandel and Steve Lucey to run a 3:28. Nick and Steve would run the 800 with Nick just under the 2:00 mark and Steve just above, while Jesse Fajnzylber ran his best time of the season in running 2:01 while Brent Harrison used front running tactics to his advantage as he came through in a PR of 1:54.34 that would earn him a 7th place finish. Brent would later anchor the 4x800 relay team of Romey, Kevin and Jeff to an 8th place finish to close out the day. Jamie ran to his best time in the 400H, running 57.13 and just missed scoring by 1 spot and also had a strong 110 Hurdle race, just missing the finals. Greg Turissini would pick up points with his 7th place run in the Steeplechase with his best mark of the year in 9:30 while Dan Crowley would run to a PR of 9:40 in finishing in 10th. Thomas Matthew would just miss the finals in the 100, running 11.50 with Josh Young and Javy Paulino coming through just after in 11.61 and 11.71 before teaming together, along with last minute replacement of 800 runner Nick Codola to grab the final scoring spot in the 4x100. Javy and Josh would run again later in the day in the rain soaked 200 where Matt would have the top time for the team, and Denis Kennelly would come through in 20th place with his time.
