Meet Recap:

Performer of the Meet - Kevin Connors

A small group of guys were able to have some semblance of sanity left after final exams to be able to compete at the ECAC Championships, and despite the rigors of exams and papers that were on going throughout the week (including the day of the meet) they competed extremely well. On Thursday night in near perfect conditions, Dan Crowley lined up for the 5k hoping to best his performance from a week earlier. An opening mile saw him in 3rd place, coming through in 4:42, and then another mile at the same pace and holding the same position - 9:24 for the deuce - showed that a PR to finish the season could be had. The leader broke from the pack, and Dan would remain in a battle for 2nd, and ultimately would finish in 3rd place as he ran to a new PR of 14:47 and a great way to cap the season. Day two would start out in PR fashion as well, as Kevin Connors and Romey Sklar would line up in the fast section of the 1500 and both runners put themselves in great up in the front of the race as they came through an opening lap of 61-62 seconds, and then came through the 800 in the mid 2:04 range and were in 3rd and 4th. Kevin would drop a 61.5 3rd 400 with Romey just behind him as they came through in 3:06-07 for the 1200 and Kevin got onto the leaders shoulders and raced hard down the homestretch to capture 3rd in 3:52.65 while Romey would find an extra gear to finish 4th in a new PR of 3:53.20. Brent Harrison would be the next to take the stage, and he lined up in the fast section of the 800 and got himself into decent position in a race that went out pretty quickly from the gun as he was through in 54 seconds for the first lap, and running in about 6th. he moved up well through the 600 hitting that mark in 1:22.2 but unfortunately did not have the legs for the homestretch and would come home with a valiant effort producing a 1:53.60 and a 9th place finish. Jamie Sandel would put a close on the day as he got after it one last time in the 400 hurdles, and while hoping to run in the elusive 55 second range for the first time, Mr. Consistency with the 56 second hurdles prevailed as he charged home in a 56.59good for 21st place. With the points scored in the 5k and 1500, the guys would finish 13th place overall and put a great cap on the season and for Romey - a great career in the purple and black. With only Mo remaining - heading to St. Lawrence for the NCAA Championships this Thursday, competing in the 10k - the season is almost wrapping up but looking for one last HUGE performance to really put a cap on this great year!
