MEDFORD -- The Tufts University men's indoor track & field team
placed third out of 14 teams at its annual Stampede held at the Gantcher
Center on Saturday. The Jumbos scored 90 points, finishing behind
Williams (144) and Stonehill (96.5).
Senior tri-captain Nate Cleveland (Auburn, ME) ran a Tufts

mark of 1:22 flat was run by Ray Carre in 2004. Also on Saturday, Jumbo
sophomore James Bradley (Atkinson, NH) hit the NCAA Championships
provisional mark by clearing 6 feet, 7 inches in the high jump.
Talented Tufts freshmen hurdlers Jared Engelking (Westborough, MA)
and Ikenna Acholonu (Shoreline, WA) went 1-2 in the 55
hurdles with time times of 7.91 and 7.92 seconds, respectively.
Also for the Jumbos, senior Josh Kennedy (Guilford, CT) earned
second-place points in the 5,000 meter run with a 15:11.28 finish. The
4x4 tandem of Engelking, senior Dustin Virgilio (Pittsfield, MA),
sophomore Skip Pagel (Mystic, CT) and freshman Andrew Longley (Short
Hills, NJ) ran second in 3:27.55 time.
Longley also scored a third in the 400 (51.39), as did junior Joe
Brown with a 53-foot heave in the shot put.
