Meet Results

MEDFORD -- With victories in eight out of the 19 events, the Tufts men's indoor track & field team easily won the second indoor invitational of the season at the Gantcher Center on Saturday afternoon. Head coach Connie Putnam's Jumbos scored 199 points to top a 12-team field that included NESCAC opponents Bates (121 pts. for 2nd), Amherst, Wesleyan and Trinity.

For the second week in a row, sophomore Fred Jones (Northfield, MA) won both the long jump (6.61 meters) and the triple jump (13.86 meters) at Gantcher. Sixth nationally in the triple jump a year ago, Jones also has two seconds at Division I meets hosted by Northeastern and Dartmouth this season.

The Jumbos had four of the top five finishers in the 400 meters on Saturday, led by junior Trevor Williams (Clifton Park, NY) in a time of 50.84 seconds. Tufts went 1-2 in the Mile, with junior Matt Fortin (Raymond, ME) winning in 4:20.55 and senior Nate Brigham (Penacook, NH) on his heels in 4:22.81.

Tufts boasted two of the fastest competitors at the meet in sophomores Mickey Ferri and Jamil Ludd (Washington, DC). Ferri won the 200 meters, running 23.69 to beat Bates' Matt Capone by a hair. He also took fifth in the 55 meter dash (6.79 seconds). Ludd won the 55 hurdles by a fraction in 7.99 seconds.

The Tufts relays also contributed big points, led by the 4x4. The foursome of sophomore Nate Cleveland (Auburn, ME), junior Pat Mahoney (Cranford, NJ), Williams and freshman Nathan Scott (East Hartford, CT) combined to cross the finish line in 3:26.75. Tufts also got a runner-up effort from its Distance Medley Relay group (10:30.71). Mahoney was also the runner-up in the 800 with a 1:57.88 finish.

Out of the throwing group, sophomore Ryan Byrne (Tewksbury, MA) had the top finish with a third in the shot put (14.29 meters).
