Individual/Relay Results (scroll down)

HARTFORD -- After a scoring error originally had them finishing second, the The Tufts University Men's Outdoor Track & Field team scored 128 points to Bates College's 129.5 points, giving the Jumbos third place at the 2004 NESCAC Championship meet hosted by Trinity College on Saturday. Williams College won the conference title with 247 points.

An error was discovered in the men's hammer and discus results. Two mistakes were made when results were transcribed from the hand sheets which affected the men's team results as well. After the scoring was corrected, Bates moved in front of Tufts for second place in the men's final team standings.

Jumbos won four conference titles, including two by freshman sensation Fred Jones (Northfield, MA). Picking up where he left off at the indoor championship season, Jones won the Long Jump in 21 feet, 1 1/2 inches and the Triple Jump in 46 feet, 7 1/2 inches.

Also victorious for Tufts was freshman Joshua Kennedy (Guilford, CT) in the 10,000 Meter Run with a time of 32 minutes, 33.88 seconds. He was followed closely by senior teammate Peter Bromka (Portland, OR) in second place with a 32:41.67 finish.

Sophomore Seth LaPierre (Auburn, NH) won the NESCAC title in the Pole Vault, clearing 15' 0 1/2" to win.

As expected, Tufts scored major points in the distance events. Junior Nate Brigham (Penacook, NH) and sophomore Matt Lacey (Amherst, MA) placed second (15:11.50) and third (15:14.04), respectively, in the 5,000 Meter Run. Senior Peter Jurczynski (Schenectady, NY) was second in the 3,000 Meter Steeplechase with a time of 9:39.08, while sophomore teammate Matt Fortin (Raymond, ME) was fourth (9:49.31).

The lone Jumbo to earn a top three finish in the throwing events was sophomore Brandon Udelhofen (Cuba City, WI), who took third in the Discus Throw with a top heave of 136 feet, 9 inches. The 4x400 Meter Relay foursome was also third in a 3:21.10 time.

Tufts continues the 2004 championship season at the New England Division III meet next weekend at Williams College.
