Meet Recap:

Last week was certainly one of the busiest and most exciting times for Amherst Track & Field, as we had the great responsibility of putting on the 2016 NESCAC Outdoor Championship. In addition, we would also send Mohamed Hussein down to the famous Penn Relays to go up against a strong field of collegiate and post-collegiate athletes in the 10,000m. Starting off a big and exciting weekend on Thursday night, Mohamed would line up on Franklin Field against a large, competitive field for the Men’s 10,000 shortly before midnight. Getting out comfortably, Mo would latch onto the lead pack and begin to click of 71s for the first half. Coming through halfway in 14:55, Mo would continue to look strong until around 7,000m where he would lose the lead pack and fall slightly off pace as he came through the 8k in a 23:56 and still on pace for a sub 30 minute finish. He would continue to make strong moves in the last mile and eventually come home in a big PR of 30:05.88 to easily secure a ticket to NCAAs at the end of this month. No rest for the weary though, as he finished his race right around midnight and then was time to focus on the 5k on Saturday at NESCAC's
