Meet Recap:

Performers of the Meet - Performers of the Meet – Thomas Matthew and Kevin Connors

This past Saturday, the Amherst men headed down to Wesleyan for the 2nd Annual Little 3 Indoor Championship. After putting in quality training over the holiday break and then two solid weeks of training together as a team during intersession, the guys were very eager to get onto the track and get the indoor season rolling. Starting the day off at noon, were Thomas Matthew and Sam Amaka in the weight throw. Both would be making their collegiate debut in the event and for Amaka, it would be his first ever collegiate track and field meet. Despite being completely new to the event, the duo did just fine getting their feet wet. Matthew would lead the way with his first toss of 11.75m, which got him 7th overall and Amaka got out to 8.47m for 9th place.  Returning later in the afternoon for the shot put, Matthew would get the shot out to 12.80m for 5th and Amaka was right behind in 6th with a throw of 12.25m. After two debuting in two new events, Thomas also took on the long jump (5.50m 5th) and the triple jump (11.84m 3r) for the first time ever in his career. Joining Matthew on the jumps runway for both events was senior, Khalil Flemming. In the long jump, Khalil got out to a nice early season mark of 6.16m for 3rd and a distance of 12.77m in the triple jump for 2nd place overall. Both Flemming and Matthew would wrap up their days with Stadtler Thompson and Hasani Figueroa in the 60m dash. Once again the leading the charge for Amherst, Thomas Matthew placed 2nd in the 60m with a near PR performance of 7.19. First year, Stadtler Thompson clocked in 7.45 for 5th and right behind him in 6th was Flemming with a time of 7.49. Figueroa was just a tick behind Flemming and took 7th place running 7.55.

Getting things rolling for the mid-distance and distance runners early on in the day was a large crew in the mile. Getting out well from the gun and tucking behind the leader, Kevin Connors would remain patient until the bell lap. Once he hit 200m to go, Connors took off confidently and easily won in a nice early season time of 4:19.5. Behind Connors, Jack Wesley and Jacob Silverman came across the line 4:32.0 and 4:35.1 for 7th and 9th overall. Running very well from the unseeded section, Peter Horton had a strong final 200m to take 6th overall with a time of 4:31.8. The remaining Amherst competitors in the mile would be a trio of first years. Tucker Meijer clocking in at 4:36.5, Jack Malague with a time of 4:39.9, and Kevin Dooley finishing in 4:42.4. Malague and Dooley would both return later in the day for a little extra work in the 1,000, while Silverman got his wheels turning with a 1:28.7 performance in the 600.  First year, Vernon Espinoza was the top finisher for Amherst 600 with his 1:26.11 effort for 2nd place. Wrapping things up in the 600 for the squad and inching closer to sub 1:30 was Jeff Ewing who finished in a time of 1:30.11 for 5th.  The highlights from the 1,000 was Brent Harrison in 3rd place with a time of 2:36.9, Ermias Kebede running 2:39.7 for 6th and Jesse Fajnzylber finishing right behind in 7th with a time of 2:40.5. Shifting a few laps down, David Ingraham nabbed a nice runner-up finish with his 52.24 in the 400 and later on would win the 200 with a time of 23.46. Ingraham would have company in both events from Harrison Haigood, who put up a time of 55.7 for 5th in the 400m and 24.85 to take 5th in the 200m. Also competing in the 200m would be Stadtler Thompson (23.98 3rd), Jeff Ewing (25.53 6th), and Maxim Doiron (26.58 7th). Doiron also ran 9.49 in the 60H for 4th, earlier in the day. Prior to the 400, we saw Haigood take 2nd overall in the high jump with a nice leap of 1.77m (5’9.75”). Relative new comer, Jay Drain would be right behind Haigood with his mark of 1.72m (5’7.75”) for 3rd place.

Nearing the end of the meet, the trio of Kristian Sogaard, Kevin Connors, and Steven Lucey, took to the track for the 800. Getting out to the lead from the gun, Kristian Sogaard would be pull the field through a relatively tame 60 sec opening quarter. Though he would fall back a bit, Sogaard charged in the final 150m and walked away with a time of 1:58.4 and his first collegiate victory. Kevin Connor’s returned nicely from his mile performance and clocked in at 1:58.5 for 2nd, while Steven Lucey ran 1:59.9 for 4th.  Taking to the track for the final open race of the day was Dan Crowley, Mohamed Hussein, Jeff Seelaus, Cole Hawkins, Justin Barry, and Aaron Zambrano, in the 3000. Things would go out relatively relaxed for a majority of this crew, as they hit the first mile just under 4:50. Though things would heat up with 400m to go and we would see Seelaus and Crowley try to counter a hard move from a Williams runner in the final 250m. Despite coming up a little short of victory, Crowley took 2nd with a time of 8:45.5 and Seelaus was right behind in 8:46.1 for 3rd. Mo Hussein was next across the line in a time of 8:48.50 for 4th, while Justin Barry dipped under 9:00 for this time with his 8:59.4 5th place performance. Also achieving a new 3k PR was senior, Cole Hawkins running 9:08.7 for 6th.  Aaron Zambrano closed things out for Amherst with his 9:27.5 for 9th place. Wrapping up the day would be our quartets in the 4x8 and 4x4. After a strong opening leg in the 4x8 from Steven Lucey, the squad would easily win in a time of 8:16.5. In the 4x4, we would have an even mix of mid-distance and sprinters, which got us a time of 3:34.5. Saturday’s Little 3 Championship served as a great first step in a long season. We definitely saw many guys get their indoor campaigns off to a fine start, but we’re still looking forward to all the work to be done in the coming weeks. Our next opportunity for showcasing our hard work will come next Saturday at the Smith Invite in Northampton, so definitely feel free swing by and cheer the guys on!
