LOWELL -- The Tufts University men's outdoor track & field team
competed at the George Davis Invitational hosted by the University of
Massachusetts Lowell today. The meet was non-scoring, and the hammer
throw competition remains to be held on Sunday.
Two second-place finishes were the best by the Jumbos at the meet.
Senior Trevor Donadt (Northborough, MA) was the runner-up in the
400-meter hurdles with a time of 55.11 seconds, eight-tenths of a second
off the NCAA provisional mark (54.30). Freshman Curtis Yancy (St.
Louis, MO) made a strong showing in the discus throw, posting a
141'5" (43.10m) mark that was second-best out of 31 entrants.
Donadt was also third in the 110-meter hurdles, finishing in 15.36
seconds. Fourth-place performances were given by freshman Jeff Marvel
(Naples, FL) in the 800 meters (1:57.35) and freshman Gbola Ajayi
(Lagos, Nigeria) in the triple jump (41'9 3/4"/12.74m).
The Tufts team will be in action at Princeton and at MIT next weekend
(Apr. 16-17), the last before the start of the championship season.
