Meet Recap:

Performers of the Meet – Cosmo Brossy, Cole Hawkins & Harrison Haigood

Despite the call for snow early last week, we were luckily spared this past weekend and were able to make the short trip down RT.9 in search of fast times and PRs at the Smith Beynon Invitational. The day would begin with senior captain, Thomas Matthew returning to the throws circle once again for the weight throw. Still learning the ins and outs of the event, Matthew has been progressing each week and on Saturday he got it out to a mark of 11.45 and took 11th overall. Thomas would come back strong later in the shot put and launch it to a new PR of 13.03m for a 7th place finish. Joining Matthew in the shot put would be Sam Amaka, who threw 11.78m and took 13th overall. Keeping busy on the outside of the oval, Khalil Flemming was taking on both the long jump and triple jump. In the long, Khalil would get out to a distance 5.37m for 13th place and 12.80m in the triple for 4th place overall. On the top of the throws and horizontal jump action, we had a trio of guys getting busy in the high jump. Leading the charge was Harrison Haigood, who got over a new PR height of 1.83 and finished 2nd. Jay Drain got up to a mark of 1.68m for 9th place and Cornell Brooks made his collegiate debut in the event.

Our first running event of the day would be our DMR, which consisted primarily of true distance guys. Starting the relay off strong, Mo Hussein split a 3:09 on the 1200 leg and handed off to Jeff Ewing on the 400m leg. Ewing got the baton around smoothly and split a 54.4 to hand off to Jeff Seelaus comfortably in first place. Seelaus would split a fine 1:59.1 and get it off to Dan Crowley, who brought it home to victory with a 4:20.5 anchor leg and overall time of 10:23.8. Next on the track was a strong group of Amherst men in the 5,000. From the gun, Cosmo Brossy and Justin Barry got out well and worked in perfect harmony for a majority of the race. Over the course of twenty-five laps, the two traded off duties at the front of the race every half mile. Sticking together until the final 400m, Brossy broke free from the field and won in a strong time of 15:25.8. Barry hung on tough and came home in 2nd place with a big PR of 15:34.2. Meanwhile, Cole Hawkins was having himself a career race not too far back and finished under 16:00 for the first time with his 15:52.1 4th place finish.  Aaron Zambrano closed out the race with his 16:14.2 performance. Shifting down to the sprints, Maxim Doiron would be next on the track in the 60H. Running a strong 9.39 in the prelims, Doiron snuck into the finals and would eventually run 9.41 to take 7th overall. In the 60 dash, David Ingraham was the top Amherst finisher with his 7.46 and 15th place finish. Making the crossover after a very successful soccer season, Aziz Khan made his collegiate track debut and ran 7.47 for 16th place overall. Behind Khan would be Young running 7.51 and Hasani Figueroa clocking in at 7.73. Khan and Figueroa would return later in the day with Stadtler Thompson and Harrison Haigood for the 4x200, where they would run 1:34.9 to take 3rd place.

In the 600m, Ermias Kebede would be the top Amherst finisher with his time of 1:28.2. Jeff Ewing would come back strong after his 400m DMR leg and run 1:30.8, while Maxim Doiron handled the “distance event” well and ran 1:33.8 for 10th place. The 800 and the 1000 would be the next events on the track and we would have a slew of Amherst guys toeing the line. In the half mile, Brent Harrison was up front for Amherst and the team’s top finisher with his 2:00.7 for 4th place. Behind Harrison would be Vernon Espinoza at 2:02.7, Jack Malague at 2:03.3, Jesse Fajnzylber at 2:04.5, and Kevin Dooley at 2:05.1. We would see the 1000 get off to a fine start due to the aggressive pace setting of first year, Jacob Silverman. Jake would lead for the first 600m, at which time a Middlebury competitor and fellow first year, Kristian Sogaard, took over the race. Sogaard battled well in the final quarter, but would have to settle for a respectable 2nd place finish and a time of 2:32.2. Silverman hung onto 3rd place and crossed the line in a time of 2:36.8. Drawing near to the end of the day, Aziz Khan, Stadtler Thompson, and Josh Young, would all return from the 60/4x200 and take on the 200 to close out their meet. Thompson would be the top finisher for Amherst, as he put up a fine time of 23.88. Khan showed more signs of speed and put up a 24.16 for 7th, while Josh Young ran 25.02 to take 15th. The open event on the track for Amherst would be the 3000. We would have Kevin Connors, Tucker Meijer, Jack Wesley, and Peter Horton, all toeing the line in search of fast times. Similar to his mile performance last weekend, Connors tucked in behind the leaders and remained patient. Though with a kilometer to go, Kevin would take off and never look back. Picking up his second straight victory, Connors won easily in a very solid time of 8:37.3. Battling very well over the final half mile, Tucker grabbed third place with 8:55.5 performance. After working well throughout the entire race, Horton and Wesley were next across the line in 9:05.9 and 9:07.5. Our day would conclude with our 4x4 (Brent Harrison, Vernon Espinoza, Jacob Silverman, Kristian Sogaard) taking 2nd with a time of 3:33.9 and our 4x8 (Kevin Dooley, Jack Malague, Peter Horton, Kevin Connors) picking up a victory with their 8:16.5. Saturday’s Smith Invitational was another solid step in the right direction for many. As interterm comes to a close and the spring semester begins, we look forward to another week of putting in work both on the track and in the classroom. Next weekend, we will have a majority of guys competing at the Springfield Invitational and a small crew heading to BU for the Terrier Classic. If you’re in either areas, we would love to have you at the track cheering on the guys!
