HIGHLIGHTS
• The 800m race had to be the highlight of the day for the home team who claimed the top six spots. Leading the way was Miles Irish in 1:51.00 with Pat Gregory (1:51.28) close behind in second and Henry Raymond (1:53.59), Nick Feffer (1:54.83), Simpson Tanner (1:55.64) and Marco Pompilj (1:56.30) following in third through sixth, respectively.
• Pompilj would go on to win the 1500m in 3:56.58 with Quinn Cooney crossing in second thanks to a 3:57.88.
Donovan Spearman was the winner of the 200m in 21.73, while also taking third in an extremely tight 100m in 10.94.
Parker Johnson (14.61), Shawn Ohazuruike (14.88) and Alec Eschholz (14.90) took home the top-three spots in the 110m hurdles.
• Eschholz (52.54) then won the 400m hurdles with freshman Max Frye (53.28) claiming second as the duo combined for 16 points. Johnson was third in 53.74.
• Johnson, Eschholz, Frye and Amos Cariati combined to run a 3:22.82 to secure the win and nine points for the Big Green in the 4x400m relay.
Colin Minor was a force in the circle as he won the hammer with a throw of 201-01.0/61.29m, a measurement that bested the field by nearly 46 feet. The throw should be good enough to qualify him for a spot at the NCAA East Regional Championship Meet next month.
• Minor was also barely edged out for the top spot in the discus as his toss of 42.43m gave him second place.
Ethan Ruh was third in the shot put as his second throw of 15.35m proved to be his best of six attempts. Minor finished fifth thanks to a 14.23m toss.
Matthew Sindelar was second in the long jump after a 6.41m leap on his second time down the runway.
