COLLEGE MEN'S OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD RESULTS New England Division III Championships At Williams College, Williamstown, MA Saturday, May 1, 2004

Meet Results

WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Tufts University Men's Outdoor Track and Field team placed fifth at the Division III New England Championships held on Saturday at Williams College. The team scored 59 points among 25 teams that scored at the event. Host and champion Williams finished with 142.5 points, followed by Bates College (70 points), MIT (68), and Springfield College (65.5).

Freshman Fred Jones (Northfield, MA) finished in the top three in two events, winning the Triple Jump with school-record jump of 47 feet, 10 1/2 inches. That breaks the 10-year old mark of 46' 10" set by Pat Dinino in 1994, and it also extends Jones' national provisional qualifying mark. He jumped 46 feet, 7 1/2 inches to win the NESCAC title last weekend. Jones also placed third in the Long Jump at the New England Division 3's with a leap of 22 feet, 6 1/2 inches.

Also winning a regional title for the Jumbos was senior Peter Bromka (Portland, OR), who won the 10,000 Meter Run with a time of 32 minutes, 53.67 seconds.

Finishing in the top five in their events to score big points for Tufts were freshman Josh Kennedy (Guilford, CT) in the 5,000 Meter Run, junior Ray Carre (Middletown, CT) in the 400 Meter Dash, senior tri-captain Peter Jurczynski (Schenectady, NY) in the 3,000 Meter Steeplechase, sophomore Seth LaPierre (Auburn, NH) in the Pole Vault, and junior Dan March (Bethesda, MD) in the Hammer Throw. Kennedy finished third with a time of 15:30.81, while Carre finished fourth with a time of 49.14 seconds, only .05 seconds behind the third-place finisher. Jurczynski was fifth with a time of 9:44.93 and LaPierre's vault of 14 feet, 6 1/4 inches placed him fifth as well. March finished fourth with a throw of 170' 1" that betters his NCAA provisional mark.

Head Coach Connie Putnam's team will make the short commute to Northeastern University this coming weekend to compete in the All-New England Championships.
