PRINCETON, N.J. and WALTHAM, Mass. – Divided into two groups, several members of the Dartmouth men’s track & field team were at both the IC4A Championship at Princeton’s Weaver Stadium and the New Balance Twilight Meet at Bentley University on Saturday.

At Bentley, Steve Mangan and Silas Talbot both lined up for the fast heat of the 1500m. Shortly thereafter, Mangan would cross the finish line first overall in 3:46.32 with Talbot taking fourth in 3:47.87 against a talented mix of collegiate and club runners.

The only other male runner at the Bentley Track Facility on this day was Tim Gorman who ran in the 5000m, taking fourth overall in 14:46.55.

Down at Princeton, the IC4A Championships were held at the same facility that housed last week’s Ivy League Heps Championship meet. With a familiar setting as the backdrop, Connor Reilly advanced in the 100m with a sixth-place showing in the prelims. Reilly will race again on Sunday after posting a 10.77 in his heat.

Brett Buskey also ran in the event, but will not move on as he took 32nd place in 11.08.

Thomas Servino earned another sixth-place showing for the Big Green, picking up the three points in the hammer throw. Servino’s best toss was measured at 188-3.0/57.39m.

Josh Cyphers and Jacob Neumann also represented the Green and White in field events as they competed in the pole vault and discus, respectively. Cyphers took 10th in the pole vault with a cleared height of 15-9.0/4.80m, while Neumann was 34th in the discus with a distance of 145-0.0/44.21m.

Sunday will see the men warp up another weekend in New Jersey with Reilly in 100m finals as well as student-athletes in the shot put and the javelin.
