NORTON, Mass. – Junior Price Day (Harvard, Mass.) posted a runner-up finish in the mile to pace the Connecticut College men's indoor track & field team at the Lyons Invitational on Saturday afternoon.
Day placed second in the mile by navigating the track in 4:27.70 to lead the way for the Camels. He fell less than a second shy of meeting the standard to qualify for the New England Division III Championships.
Other notable performances on the track were made by sophomore Jacob Brill-Weil (Cambridge, Mass.), freshman Spencer Crough (Southampton, N.Y.) and senior Christian Whitaker (Dolton, Ill.). Brill-Weil was third in the 600-meter dash in 1:25.09 thanks in large part to a strong finish on the bell lap, while Crough notched an impressive mark of 1:25.50 to place fourth in his indoor collegiate debut. Whitaker punched in a third-place time of 24.16 seconds in the 200-meter dash.
In the field, the Camels were paced by personal-best efforts by junior Mike D'Onofrio (East Haven, Conn.) and sophomore Jacob Beloin (Cheshire, Conn.). D'Onofrio finished fourth in the weight throw with a toss that sailed 38-feet, 7.50-inches, and Beloin cracked the program's top 10 list by registering a mark of 19-3.25 in the long jump.
Connecticut College will next compete at the Tufts Stampede on Saturday, Jan. 27.
