Invitational III Results
BOSTON -- The Tufts men's indoor track & field team spent its last
weekend prior to the start of the championship season by splitting the
squad and competing at a home invitational at the Gantcher Center and
over at the MIT Invitational. Both were non-scoring meets.
At Tufts, senior quad-captain Dave Sorensen (Dover, MA) ran a
4:16.84 mile, 0.84 of second behind the NCAA provisional mark of 4:16
flat. He took fifth in the race. Sophomore Trevor Donadt
(Northborough, MA) was second for the Jumbos in the 55-meter hurdles
with a time of 7.87 seconds. Fractions of a second behind him was
sophomore teammate Jared Engelking (Westborough, MA) in third
place at 7.90 seconds. Donadt also earned a fourth in the triple jump
with 41'5 1/4" distance.
Winners for the Jumbos were the 4x400 relay and freshman pole vaulter
Sam Read (Barkhamsted, CT). The 1,600-meter relay group of
sophomore Andrew Longley (Short Hills, NJ), freshman Matt
Keefer (Yonkers, NY), junior Colin Fitzgerald and freshman
Jeremy Peterson (Middlebury, VT) won with a 3:28.08 time that was
.02 ahead of second-place Stonehill College. Read's 13'9" vault easily
topped the field.
Coach Ethan Barron sent the Tufts jumpers to MIT to compete. Jumbos
took two seconds over there. Senior quad-captain Jeremy Arak
(Ipswich, MA) cleared 6'3 1/4" in the high jump to finish as
runner-up. Classmate and fellow quad-captain Dan Marcy (Middletown,
NY) reached 46'6 1/4" in the triple for second place.
Tufts will host the New England Division III Indoor Championships at
the Gantcher Center next weekend (Feb. 22-23).
