Championship Results

LEWISTON, Me. -- Juniors Nathan Scott (East Hartford, CT) and Jeremy Arak (Ipswich, MA) of the Tufts University men's indoor track & field team won 2007 New England Division III indoor titles this weekend at Bates College. Their victories led the Jumbos to a second place finish as a team with 103 points scored.

Scott won the pentathlon on Friday with a score of 3,404 points. Tufts dominated the pentathlon, with three Jumbos scoring among the top five. Sophomore Skip Pagel (Mystic, CT) finished in fourth place with 3,217 points and freshman Jared Engelking (Westborough, MA) was fifth with 3,214 points. In total, Tufts scored 19 points in the event. Engelking won the 55 meter hurdles event of the pentathlon with a time of 7.98 seconds. Scott was sixth in 8.42 seconds. He went on to take third in the long jump with a distance of 20 feet, 5 3/4 inches, was fifth in the shot up at 36'3" and was second in the 1,000 meter run (2:44.54).

Arak won the high jump for the second straight year, clearing 6' 5 1/2". The Jumbos also scored major points in this event, with sophomore James Bradley (Atkinson, NH) scoring fourth (6'3 1/2"), along with freshman Isaiah Paramore and sophomore Ted McMahan tying for sixth at 5'11 1/2".

The 55 meter hurdles was also a big event for Tufts. Engelking and classmate Ikenna Acholonu (Shoreline, WA) were second and third crossing the finish line in 7.86 and 7.87 seconds, respectively. Bowdoin's Joseph Adu won in 7.85 seconds in the closest of photo finishes. The Jumbos also got fifth place points from Trevor Donaldt (Northborough, MA) with a time of 8.05 seconds.

Senior tri-captain Fred Jones (Northfield, MA) was edged in both the long jump and triple jump by Williams College's Branden Mirach. Jones went 22'11 3/4" to Mirach's 23 flat in the long jump, and 46'2 3/4" to Mirach's 47'10 1/2" in the triple. It marked the first year of Jones' career that he did not win an event at the New England Division III meet. He was first in both events in 2005 and 2006, and was the triple jump champion in 2004.

Tufts got third-place performances from seniors Dustin Virgilio (Pittsfield, MA) in the 400 meters (51 flat) and Nate Cleveland (Auburn, ME) in the 800 meters (1:56.98).

Williams College won the team championship with 152 points.
