|2010 New England decathlon champ Jared
DEDHAM -- Senior Jared Engelking (Westborough,
MA) of the Tufts University men's outdoor track & field team won
the decathlon at the 2010 All-New England Championships hosted by
Northeastern University from Thursday through Saturday. He became
the second straight Jumbo to win the All-New England decathlon,
following former teammate Skip Pagel's victory last year.
Engelking scored 6,587 points to improve his NCAA
qualifying mark to sixth-best in the nation as of tonight. He won the
title by more than 300 points over the rest of the field. Engelking
scored 840 points with a time of 15.08 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles.
He totaled 759 points in the 400 meters with a time of 51.23 seconds.
The quad-captain won four of the 10 events, also including the discus
throw and the pole vault. Freshman Michael Blair (Wellesley, MA)
was eighth in the decathlon with 5,178 points.
Another impressive performance came from senior
Trevor Donadt (Northborough, MA), whose time of 53.60 seconds in the
400-meter hurdles vastly improves his NCAA provisional mark into the top
10 in the nation. He was fourth at the meet. Freshman Matt Rand (Cape
Elizabeth, ME) scored six third-place points with his 31:31.79 time
in the 10,000 meters.
The 4x800 meter relay placed fifth in 7:44.47, with an
order of senior Billy Hale (Menlo Park, CA), senior Jason
Hanrahan (Westport, CT), freshman Jeff Marvel (Naples, FL),
and senior Jesse Faller (Burlington, MA). Because Tufts had never
competed in the event outdoors, the time is a school record. Senior Ryan Lena (Orono, ME) scored a point by finishing eighth in the
3,000-meter steeplechase (9:26.93).
The Jumbos scored 27 points overall to place 12th at the
meet, the best spot in three years. Rhode Island won the team title with
