NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Connecticut College men's track & field program will be poised to show improvement at the NESCAC Championships this weekend. The one-day event will be held on the campus of Trinity College.
The Camels are expected to pile up most of their points in the distance events. Junior Scott Mason (Wyndmoor, Pa.), who has the third-fastest steeplechase time in the nation this spring, is the heavy favorite to capture the event at the championship meet. Senior Connor Trapp is seeded second in the 1,500-meter run, while sophomore Danny Aschale (Cambridge, Mass.) will look to score in the 10,000-meter run.
In the field, the Camels could get points from juniors Mike D'Onofrio (East Haven, Conn.) and junior Jonathan Handy (Hingham, Mass.). D'Onofrio has registered the sixth-best javelin throw mark in the conference this spring, and Handy has the capability to compile points in the javelin as well as the hammer.
The championship event begins on Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. Live stats and a webcast will be available for fans who can't make it to the meet in person.
