DURHAM, N.H. – With several individuals still in Philadelphia for the Penn Relays, the majority of the Dartmouth men’s track & field team made their way to the New Hampshire Seacoast for Saturday’s Wildcat Invitational II at UNH.
As a team, the Big Green claimed fourth place with 87 points. Maine (134.50), Central Connecticut (100) and UMass (98) were the three programs to place ahead of Dartmouth in the standings.
The highlight of the day was freshman Timothy Brennan winning both the hammer and discus, while also picking up points in the shot put.
Brennan won the hammer throw with a measurement of 171-6.0/52.27m on his second attempt of the day. That toss was more than eight-feet better than the second-place competitor. He added another individual victory and 10 more points in the discus with a 132-6.0/40.39m on his fourth throw.
Brennan also earned a fifth-place showing in the shot put (45-1.75/13.76m). In all, the rookie finished the day with 24 points.
John Abraham claimed the top spot in the 100m, winning his heat and besting an overall field of 16 with a time of 11.16 (-1.4). Edward Wagner — fresh off three events Friday at the Penn Relays — was seventh overall in 11.47, while Guy Green was eighth in 11.63.
Like Friday, the team relied heavily on Wagner as he also ran in the 200m, taking second overall and adding eight points to the final team score. The second-year student-athlete posted a 22.36 (0.2) in the event.
Julian Heninger led a strong group in the 1500m as three Big Green runners finished in the top-10. Heninger ran a 4:00.15 to take fourth with Connor Clark (4:01.28) and Tony Anzvino (4:04.53) earning seventh and 10th, respectively.
Freshman Alex Frye was second in the 110m hurdles with a 15.21 (-1.4) to his credit, while sophomore Daniel Katz was fifth in 15.41 (-1.4).
The 400m hurdles saw Jules Hislop earn a fourth-place finish in 55.13 to help record five points toward the Green’s score.
Ben Nollet claimed fifth in the javelin with a toss of 163-5/49.82m on this sixth and final attempt of the afternoon. Additionally, Nollet was third in the high jump, clearing 6-0.75/1.85m en route to another six points.
