At Brunswick, ME

Meet Results

BRUNSWICK – Tufts took second out of four teams at a quad-meet hosted by Bowdoin College on Saturday. A unique setting compared to the larger invitationals the team typically competes at, a short-handed Jumbo squad scored 163 points to trail an always-talented MIT team that scored 184 points. Springfield was third at 109 and Bowdoin was last at 96.

Fred Jones again was at the top of the Tufts performances. His long jump distance of 23 feet, 1/2 inch won the meet and provisionally qualified for the NCAA Division III championships. The effort was the third-longest by a Division III competitor this winter. In addition to winning the long jump at Bowdoin, Jones also won the triple jump with a best of 45' 4 1/2". Jones already has the best triple jump of the season, launching a 47' 11 1/4" at Northeastern on December 4.

Matt Lacey (Amherst, MA) was a close second in the 3,000 meters with a 8:31.21 time that is his personal best. He and event winner Andrew Combs of Bowdoin (8:30.16) broke the facility record.

Aaron Kaye (Los Altos, CA) won the 800 in 1:58.87, and Tufts went 1-2 in the 5,000. Nate Brigham (Penacook, NH) won with a 15:09.03 time and Josh Kennedy (Guilford, CT) was 10-seconds behind in second place with a finish of 15:19.82. Nate Thompson (South Portland, ME) was first in the trials and in the finals of the 55 hurdles, winning in 8.05 seconds.

The Jumbos won the two relay events at the meet. The 4x4 of Trevor Williams (Clifton Park, NY), Pat Mahoney (Cranbury, NJ), Nate Scott (East Hartford, CT) and Nate Cleavland (Auburn, ME) won by more than three seconds with its time of 3:26.07. The 4x800 of Ciaran O'Donovan (Newton, MA), Anyenda Inyagwa (Boston, MA), Lacey and Kaye combined for a time of 8:13.06 that was the best by four seconds. Tufts beat MIT in both races.
