HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth men’s indoor track & field team hosted a pair of Ivy League rivals Saturday at Leverone Field House and came away winners.
The Big Green posted 83 points to win its annual home tri-meet with Yale and Columbia. The Bulldogs were second with 69 points, while the Lions finished third thanks to scoring 26.
• The first win of the day went to senior Colin Minor in the weight throw as his 18.29m toss on his third attempt was far and away the top figure in the event. The throw was a new PR for Minor who had never thrown over 60 feet before.
• Minor would go on to finish second in the shot put with a 15.20m to his credit. Teammate Ethan Ruh was the only person ahead of Minor as the sophomore’s first throw of the day proved to be the best of anyone’s, measuring 15.24m.
• Matt Sindelar kept the Big Green’s success on the infield going as he cleared 1.99m on his first try to win the high jump.
• Zach Plante (51.05) and Myles Holt (51.35) went one-two in the 400m to secure an additional eight points.
• Amos Cariati picked up another win, doing so in 1:06.23 in the 500m, edging out the second-place runner from Columbia by seven-hundredths of a second. Michael Thurston was third in 1:06.63, one of four runners within a second of Cariati at the top of the leaderboard.
• Tim Zepf was the winner of the 800m, crossing in 1:54.92, just ahead of teammate and second-place finisher Nick Feffer in 1:55.70.
• Adam Couitt ran a 22.47 to win the 200m with Lloyd May taking second in 22.91.
• Couitt was the top Green and White runner in the final of the 60m, taking third in 7.07.
• The mile race saw Sean Laverty take second in 4:19.40 to earn three points toward the team score.
• Seven Dartmouth runners made the final of the 60m hurdles, but it was Yale’s Paedyn Gomes who won the event. Parker Johnson (8.21) and Ben Colello (8.37) were second and third, respectively.
• The 4x800m relay team of Feffer, Thurston, Reed Horton and Pat Gregory took second in 7:50.45. The exciting race saw the three teams all finish within seven-tenths of a second of one another.
• Cariati, Max Frye, Alec Eschholz and Johnson also claimed second for Dartmouth in the 4x400m in what was the final event of the day.
• Ben Ose moved to No. 5 on the program's all-time list in the pole vault with his clearance of 16-2.75
