COLLEGE MEN'S TRACK & FIELD RESULTS
ECAC Division 3 Championships
Thursday-Friday, May 14-15, 2009
At Springfield, MA
SPRINGFIELD -- Junior Isaiah Paramore (Charlotte, NC) of the
Tufts University men's outdoor track & field team cleared 6'6 3/4"
(2.00m) in the high jump to lead the Jumbos at the ECAC Division 3
Championships hosted by Springfield College on Thursday and Friday.
Tufts finished in a tie for 29th place by scoring 10.5 points.
Paramore's height was just three-quarters of an inch shy of the NCAA
provisional qualifying mark of 6'7 1'2", which is also the Tufts outdoor
record. Paramore tied for second place at the ECAC meet.
A skeleton Jumbo line-up also featured points from senior sprinter
Phil Rotella (Louisville, KY) and sophomore Jeff Ragazzini
(Wilton, CT). Rotella, competing in the last meet of his career,
placed seventh in the 200 meter dash with a time of 22.03 seconds.
Ragazzini ran 4:00.40 for eighth place in the 1,500 meter run.
Senior quad-captain Colin Fitzgerald (Scarborough, NY), also
in action for the last time, was just outside of the top eight in the
100 meters with a 22.17 time for 10th. Likewise, junior quad-captain
Nick Welch (Seattle, WA) was 10th, just a fraction of a second out
of eighth place with his 9:36.96 time in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.
The NCAA Championships are next week (May 21-23) in Marietta,
Georgia, with junior Jesse Faller (Burlington, MA) likely
qualified in the 1,500 and the 5K.
