several events and ran an NCAA provisional qualifying time of 14.61
seconds in the 110-meter hurdles.
While also competing in the javelin, discus, and pole vault,
Engelking's sixth-place finish in the 110 hurdles was the top Tufts

in both throws, and eighth in the PV.

(Wilton, CT) produced two top-15 finishes. He was ninth in the 1,500
meters with a 4:04.22 finishing time. In the 5,000 meters, he crossed
the finish line in 15:29.19 for 14th place. In the 800 meters, NCAA
