NORTON, Mass. – The Connecticut College men's track & field competed at the Wheaton Invitational over the weekend.
The Camels most notably had two student-athletes record qualifying times for the upcoming New England Division III Championships, as junior Jacob Brill-Weil (Cambridge, Mass.) finished second in the 1,000-meter run in 2:36.84 and classmate Josh Simensky (Falmouth, Maine) clocked in an eighth-place mark of 1:59.3 in the 800. Both student-athletes also teamed up with senior Price Day (Harvard, Mass.) and freshman Ben Vazquez (Millington, N.J.) to record a third-place time of 3:33.27 at the end of the meet.
In addition, the program produced several personal-best marks in various events over the course of the two-day meet. Junior Jake Beloin (Cheshire, Conn.) scored 3,430 points in the heptathlon, which also included posting his best-ever marks in three of the seven events, and senior Russell Adam (Cheshire, Conn.) ran his fastest time in the mile by finishing in 4:30.3. In the field, senior Jonathan Handy (Hingham, Mass.) registered a personal-best toss of 42-feet, 2-inches in the weight throw.
Connecticut College will next head to Tufts to compete at the Branwen Smith-King Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 26th.
