Meet Recap:

Performers of the Weekend - Dan Crowley, Jeff Seelaus and Peter Horton

It was a busy weekend for the men of Amherst Track and Field, as we had a small contingency of guys head east for the Boston University Terrier Invite while everyone else suited up for the Springfield Massasoit Invitational. At the fast banked-track of Boston University, our first two competitors of the day would be Kevin Connors and first year, Kristian Sogaard, in the mile. Competing in the 4th heat of the day, Kevin would get out on the conservative side and settle in the back end of the field. Over the course of the race, Kevin worked himself up to the middle of the pack and finished just off a personal best in the mile with a time of 4:14.1. Sogaard would be next up on the track and he would get his first taste of crowded, competitive collegiate mile. The first year would get jostled here and there, but held his own and finished with a respectable 4:20.04. Later in the evening, Mo Hussein and Dan Crowley got their chance to show their stuff in the 3,000. Nestled in the middle of the pack for a majority of the race, the duo would eventually move up to the leaders after the mile. At two laps to go, Crowley positioned himself right in the lead pack and by the bell lap position he was in a prime spot. Closing very hard over the final 200, Dan was able to take 2nd in the heat and pick up a new career best of 8:22.8. Mo would finish not to far behind and also in a personal best time of 8:27.1. Fueled by the great performances of his teammates, Jeff Seelaus had his own crack at the 3,000 and also walked away with a huge personal best of 8:30.6

Starting off our day on the oval at Springfield would be a handful of guys in the 60m dash. Turning in his best performance of the season, Josh Young lead the way with his 7.42 and 5th place finish. First year, Stadtler Thompson finished right behind Young in 6th place with a personal best of 7.45. Hasani Figueroa would run 7.58 for 12th place and making his debut in the dash, Sam Amaka ran 8.11 for 19th.  After his strong performance in the 60, Josh Young would run 24.77 to take 12th in the 200. In the 60H, Maxim Doiron turned in a performance of 9.52 to finish 14th place overall. While our sprinters were keeping busy on the track, we had a strong group of guys taking on the throws circle and jumps runway. In the weight throw, Thomas Matthew would have a big personal best and get the weight out to a mark of 12.77m for 8th place overall. Keeping with the trend, Sam Amaka also got the weight out to new personal best of 11.14m. Matthew would return later in the day for the shot put and get it out to 12.79m to take 6th place.

Getting back to the track, we would have the quartet of David Ingraham, Stadtler Thompson, Aziz Khan, and Harrison Haigood take on the 4x200 relay. These guys would get the baton around the track smoothly and put up a new school record time of 1:33.47. Khan would return later in the afternoon to also run a strong open 200m time of 23.71 for 3rd overall. After a fine showing in the 4x200, we would have Cosmo Brossy, Tucker Meijer, and Brent Harrison toe the line for the mile. Going out in a relatively relaxed and comfortable pace, the trio would work together for a majority of the race. Though at the bell lap, Brossy would begin to kick and try to counter a move by competitors from Springfield and Trinity. In the end, Cosmo would finish a respectable third with a time of 4:26.5, Brent took 4th in 4:30.3 and Tucker was 5th with a 4:32.6. After a fine showing in the mile, we would have another group of guys ready to tackle to the 800. Taking it out hard from the gun would be first year, Jake Silverman. Leading the race until the final 100m, Jake would hold on to finish 2nd overall with a nice 1:59.3 performance. Jesse Fajnzylber just missed going sub 2:00 and finished 4th in 2:00.52, while Ermias Kebede was right behind him in 2:01.40 for 4th place. Moving onto the 1000, we would see a fine battle up front by Steven Lucey. Gapping the field early on with a Trinity competitor, Lucey would do his best to keep it close over the later stages of the race. Though he would lose slight ground on the Bantam in the last 400m, Lucey would steadily reel him back in and catch him right at the line to win in 2:32.67. Behind Lucey would be Vernon Espinoza at 2:39.85, Jack Malague finishing in 2:40.68, and Kevin Dooley at 2:42.41.

Closing out the day at Springfield would be a solid group of guys chasing after PRs and qualifiers in the 3,000. Allowing a pacesetter do the early work, Peter Horton, Justin Barry, and Jack Wesley sat comfortably right off the front in the opening laps. Shortly after the mile and the pacesetter out, the race would be on and Justin took the lead to keep things honest. At the bell lap, we would see Peter shoot to the front and kick for home. In a lean at the line, Horton would grab the W in a big PR of 8:52.9, while the 2nd place finisher from Trinity ran 8:52.92. Jack Wesley also had a strong bell lap kick to also PR and take 3rd in 8:53.91. After strong work up front, Justin Barry also came home in a PR and a time of 8:55.92. Behind this trio, we would have Aaron Zambrano run 9:15.9 for 5th and Cole Hawkins take 9th in 9:26.8.The final events of the meet would be our relay squads in the 4x400 and 4x800. For the 4x4, the guys would clock in at 3:49.0 to take 6th. In the 4x8, we would have “A” and “B” squads that were made up of guys doubling back and looking to work on their speed. It was fairly close for a majority of the race, but in the end Squad A would pull away to win overall in 8:11.3, while Squad B took 2nd in 8:15.6.

As we enter the final stretch of the regular season, this past weekend proved that the guys are rounding into form at the right time. Next weekend will be at Tufts University for another great day of competition and big marks.
