Meet Recap:

Performers of the Meet - Jamie Sandel & Lucas Lebovitz

With blizzard warnings set for late afternoon in Boston, the meet was moved up a bit and set onto a rolling schedule and despite the crazy number of entrants in all events, the guys were on the bus at 6:30 heading back home after a great day of warming things up on the track. A lot of great action over the course of the day and perhaps one of the biggest highlights was Greg Turissini taking down his own school record in the 3000, as he finished 4th in his section (3rd fastest heat) and 30th overall by running an 8:16.58 despite battling an illness all week. His time takes off 3 seconds from his record set last year, and moves him up to 8th on the NCAA list this winter. Romey Sklar had the highest placing on the day, as he finished 24th overall in the 1000, running to a new PR of 2:29.26. While he did not get out as aggressively as hoped, he was strong in the last 2 laps to put himself back into contention to get his PR. Jamie Sandel also broke the Top 30, as he scorched his 500 heat - winning his section and finishing 27th overall - also in a new PR of 1:06.28 after hitting the 400 in 51 seconds he was still able to power home strong. He then finished the day on a great note as well, as he lead off the 4x400 relay - consisting of Nick Codola, Brent Harrison and David Ingraham - with a sub 51 leg, as the quartet would survive a hand off bobble from 2-3, and then David would bring the stick home with a sub 50 clocking as the guys ran 3:22.08 to get 30th overall. Prior to the relay, Nick ran a 1:06.98 in the 500, while David would run to a new PR in the 400 as he got under 51 seconds for the first time while Brent would finish 4th in his 800 section, running a 1:55.61. In other 800 action, Chris Butko and Lucas Lebovitz would each grab runner-up finishes in their respective sections, with both running strong races - Chris coming through at 1:56.16 while Lucas ran to a new PR of 1:57.88. Kevin Connors led the way for a big contingent of guys in the Mile, as he raced to a new PR of 4:17.03 for the teams top time, while Jesse Fajnzylber came across in a 4:27 in the next section. A few of the distance guys dropped down to the mile, and despite that not being the focus of our training this winter, they got to zap the legs with a little speed, and Scotty Nelson dipped under the 4:30 mark as did middle-distance guy Jack Wesley - with both running 4:29 - and Justin Barry raced to a 4:31, Aaron Zambrano & Zack Grand were in the same section and raced 4:41 and 4:44 while Sam Wohlforth finished up the mile races with his 4:39.68. Khalil Flemming got his first 13m jump in the triple jump, as he bounded to a 30th place finish while Steve Hetterich jumped over 12m in finishing 36th. Duncan Norton had the top time in the 200 for the team, as he raced to a season best time of 23.15 while Josh Young got under 24 seconds for the first time this winter with his 23.63 and Nate Showalter got his first taste of the banked track. Speaking of tasting the track, in the final section of the 3000, Raymond Meijer was having an incredible race and with just 150 to go, and looking awesome in 3rd place, he got tripped from behind by another run and went down hard on the track - going from 3rd to nearly at the back of the pack. He got himself up, pushed the shock of the fall aside and was able to finish in a PR of 8:52 but not the low 8:40's he was on target for. In the 3000 also, Craig Nelson just dipped under his best time from earlier in the season with his 8:50.92, Ben Fiedler ran an 8:51.84 while Jeff Seelaus came through in 8:54.50. With the completion of the meet, this also ended the invitational portion of the season as the Championship meets get started this coming weekend with the DIII New England's at Springfield the first one on the docket.
