Members of the men’s track and field teams competed in two different meets this past weekend. Seven team members competed at the All-Ohio Championships at Ohio Wesleyan University. Two more runners who qualified for All-Ohio, Nat Fox ’16 and Sam Lagasse ’16, traveled to Bucknell University to compete in another meet, the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic.
“We weren’t hitting the same distances or the same times that we had been, but it was not a significant drop,” Jackson Pine ’17 said. “People were still very happy.”
Pine was the Lords’ top finisher, taking 11th place in the javelin throw after throwing 43.76 meters. Alton Barbehenn ’17 finished 13th in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 58.36.
The 4×400-meter relay team of Barbehenn, Noah Winters ’15, Tanner Zaas ’15 and Ar’Reon Watson ’18 finished their race in a time of 3:37.26. Eric Thornton ’18 finished the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 10:54.34, just a few seconds off his personal best. Andres Herrera ’16 beat his personal best in the 10,000-meter run, finishing in 34:42.21.
Also competing in the 10,000-meter run was Lagasse at the unscored Bucknell Bison Classic. Competing against runners from schools all over the East Coast, including some Division I schools, he finished the event in 31:28.42. Fox competed in the 1,500-meter run, and finished with a time of 4:05.52. Both Lagasse and Fox had their season-best times at the meet.
This Saturday, Kenyon will host its only home meet of the outdoor season, the Kenyon Spring Invitational, beginning with throwing events at 10 a.m.
