Meet Results

LEWISTON, Me. -- Senior tri-captain Nate Scott (East Hartford, CT) extended his own pentathlon record for the Jumbo men's indoor track & field team while placing second at a pentathlon event hosted by Bates College on Saturday. Scott's score of 3,422 points surpassed his previous mark of 3,415 points at the New England Div. III Championships at MIT in 2006.

Senior Derek Engelking (Westborough, MA) and sophomore Trevor Donadt (Northborough, MA) also competed for the Jumbos. Scott was second behind John Miley of Bates College, who scored 3,472 points. Engelking scored 3,173 for third place and Donadt placed eighth with 3,014 points. Tufts head coach Ethan Barron and graduate assistant coach Kevin Bright, both former All-Americans at Middlebury College, entered as unattached competitors. In a field of 12, Barron took fifth place with 3,057 points and Bright scored 3,055 points for sixth place.

Scott was consistent throughout the five events. He took third in the opening 55-meter hurdles in a race that featured Jumbos 1-2-3. Coach Barron won the race, his specialty, in 7.85 seconds, just 0.09 seconds off the NCAA provisional mark. Donadt was second in 8.09 and Scott's time was 8.20 seconds. In the long jump, Scott reached 20 feet, 8 1/2 inches (6.31 meters) to finish second behind only James Spaulding of Southern Maine at 21-4 (6.5m).

In the shot put, Scott earned fourth place with a best toss of 33-3 1/4. Engelking was second in the event with 38-3 1/2 distance. Scott's top performance came in the high jump, where his 6-2 1/4 tied for first with Miley. Bright cleared 6 feet to tie for third in the event. The 1,000 meters, the fifth and final event, saw Scott run 2:49.53 to place second, second to Miley's 2:47.62. Bright was third with a 2:49.75 time.
