win the 1,500 meter run with a 3:59.38 time. His time of 1:56.22 in the
800 meters won in a photo finish, with Wesleyan's Chris Coleman second
Junior Alex Gresham (Milton, MA) scored six points for the
Jumbos with a third-place effort in the hammer throw. He was the top
Division III finisher with 166'7" (50.77m) distance. Tufts also got a
fourth from freshman long jumper Gbola Ajayi (Lagos, Nigeria). He
went 20'7" (6.27m), also the best for Division III at the meet.
