HANOVER, N.H. – For the fifth time this year, the Big Green men’s track & field team hosted a home meet. The Dartmouth Indoor Classic was held Saturday inside Leverone Field House and featured numerous teams from across the Northeast.
The meet was non-scoring.
The highlight of the day for the host team was Corey Muggler’s amazing fifth attempt in the long jump. Muggler was measured at 24-3.75/7.41m, a mark that was nearly two feel better than the second-place competitor.
Alec Eschholz (8.27), Parker Johnson (8.30) and Shawn Ohazuruike (8.32) went one-two-three in the final of the 60m hurdles. Guy Green was a split second back of first in the 60m, taking second in 7.05.
Reed Horton won the mile in 4:14.29, besting a field of more than 40, while Amos Cariati took the top spot in the 500m in 1:04.34. Likewise, freshman Michael Thurston was the top runner in the 800m, crossing in 1:55.26.
It wasn’t just Muggler who dominated in the field events as Justin Donawa’s 49-7.25/15.12m was almost five feet further than the next-closest competitor. That jump was his first of the day and set the tone for the rest of the competition that others could not come close to matching.
Tim Brennan (67-2.75/20.49m) and Colin Minor (59-1.25/18.01m) were second and third, respectively, in the weight throw, but were the top two collegians. Lucas Ribeiro was the top performer in the shot put, placing first with a 52—4.0/15.95m to his credit.
