Meet Results

David Sorensen won the 5,000 meters for the Jumbos at Bowdoin

BRUNSWICK, Me. -- The Tufts University men's track & field team took first and second place in both the 55-meter hurdles and the high jump to highlight its performance at the Bowdoin Invitational on Saturday. The Jumbos scored 127.5 points to finish second out of five teams at the meet.

In the high jump, sophomore James Bradley (Atkinson, NH) and junior Jeremy Arak (Ipswich, MA) both cleared 6 feet, 5 1/2 inches, but Bradley was awarded the victory based upon clearing the height in his first attempt. In the 55 hurdles, freshmen Ikenna Acholonu (Shoreline, WA) and Jared Engelking (Westborough, MA) were just 0.03 of a second apart, with Acholonu winning in 7.92 seconds and Engelking next in 7.95 seconds.

The Jumbos scored well in the dashes. Freshman Andrew Longley (Short Hills, NJ) ran 23.06 seconds in the 200 meters to nip Springfield's Steve Headley (23.13). Freshman Colin Fitzgerald (Scarborough, MA) won the 400 with a time of 52 seconds flat to edge Bowdoin's Brendan Egan (52.26). Senior Mickey Ferri (Stamford, CT) took second in the 55 meters at 6.73 seconds, behind Headley's 6.56.

Junior Dave Sorensen (Dover, MA) gave the Jumbos a distance victory in the 5,000 with a 15:19.41 time. Senior tri-captain Fred Jones (Northfield, MA) won the triple jump by almost a foot with his best of 46' 2 3/4". Junior Joe Brown added big points to the Tufts effort with a second place in the shot put, heaving the ball 51' 10", just 3/4 of an inch behind winner Dom Uguccioni of Springfield.
