SOMERVILLE -- The Tufts University men's outdoor track &
field team opened a busy 2010 home season at Ding Dussault Track on
Saturday with the annual Snowflake Classic. The non-scoring meet
included several winning performances by the Jumbos.
Freshman thrower Curtis Yancy (St. Louis, MO) was first in two
events. His 43'2 1/2" (13.17m) heave in the shot put was the best in an
all-Tufts field. He also out-hurled the competition in the discus throw
with a 136'3" (41.52m) effort. Junior Alex Gresham (Milton, MA)
gave Tufts wins in three of the four throwing events, launching the
hammer 149'7" (45.59m).
Senior Trevor Donadt
(Northborough, MA) topped two short fields in the hurdles, winning
the 110 hurdles in 15.58 seconds and the 400 hurdles in 56.52 seconds.
Senior Isaiah Paramore (Charlotte, NC) cleared 6'1 1/4" (1.86m)
to win the high jump. He was also third in the long jump (21'2
1/2"/6.46m). Senior quad-captain Jared Engelking (Westborough, MA)
and freshman teammate Brad Nakanishi (Scarborough, ME) tied
for first in the pole vault, getting over the bar at 13'5 1/4" (4.10m).
Junior Chris Brunnquell (Harrington Park, NJ) was over 30 seconds
out in front of the rest of the field in the 10,000 meter run, winning
in a 32:33.20 time.
Another runner-up finish was earned
by senior quad-captain Billy Hale (Menlo Park, CA) in the 1,500
meters (4:01.84). Freshman Vinnie Lee (Walpole, MA) took
second in the 100-meter dash, crossing the finish line in 11.38 seconds.
Tufts will host the men's and women's NESCAC and New England Division
III Championships at Dussault Track later this season.
