PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Sophomore Daniel Aschale (Cambridge, Mass.) won the 3,000-meter run by punching in one of the nation's fastest times to lead the Connecticut College men's indoor track & field team at the Rhode Island College Invitational on Saturday afternoon.
Aschale cruised to victory in the 3,000 by crossing the line in 8:52.70. The mark ranks ninth nationally and also eclipsed the qualifying standard for the New England Division III Championships later this winter. Senior Connor Trapp (Wilmette, Ill.) also had an impressive performance in the event by finishing second in 8:58.82.
In the field, the Camels were led by Jonathan Handy (Hingham, Mass.) in the weight throw. The junior registered a ninth-place toss that traveled 37-feet, 1-inch.
Connecticut College will break for final exams and return to action when it competes at the Bowdoin Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 13 at 12:30 p.m.
