MEDFORD -- The Tufts University men's indoor track & field team
began 2010 by winning a home invitational by 80 points on Saturday
afternoon at the Gantcher Center. Coach Ethan Baron's team finished
with 239 points to win the eight-team meet. Division II UMass Lowell
came in second with a 159 score.
The Jumbos were winners in eight of the 19 events. Seniors Jared
Engelking (Westborough, MA) and Billy Hale (Menlo Park, CA)
were the top Tufts performers, with Engelking's time of 7.79 seconds in
the 55 meter hurdles and Hale's 4:18.97 mile run missing their
respective NCAA provisional qualifying marks by close margins.
The senior class enjoyed a successful day for the Jumbos with five
total wins. Scott Brinkman (Alamo, CA) added a victory in the 600
meters with a 1:24.56 time. In the 1,000 meters, Jason Hanrahan
(Westport, CT) was first with a 2:33.36 finish. Isaiah Paramore
(Charlotte, NC) cleared 6'3" (1.91m) to win the high jump.
Junior Sam Read (Barkhamsted, CT) pole vaulted 14'2" (4.34m)
to take that event. Sophomore Scott McArthur (Denver, CO) earned
his first collegiate victory with a 15:29.68 time in the 5K.
The Jumbos also scored first-place points with a win in the 4x800
relay, though just three Tufts teams were entered in the race.
Tufts competes at Wheaton College next Saturday.
