Three Men’s Track & Field Runners Register Top-20 National Marks at Cupid Challenge

MEDFORD, Mass. – Senior Connor Trapp (Wilmette, Ill.) was among three Camels to register one of the top-20 marks in the country in an event this winter to help lead the Connecticut College men's track & field team at the Cupid Challenge hosted by Tufts on Saturday afternoon.

Trapp finished sixth in the mile by punching in a time of 4:16.67 in the mile. His mark currently ranks 15th in the country. In addition, sophomore Danny Aschale (Cambridge, Mass.) and junior Scott Mason (Wyndmoor, Pa.) placed second and third in the 3,000-meter run by registering times of 8:28.24 and 8:28.48, respectively. The marks also rank 17th and 18th nationally.

Other notable performances, which were also New England Division III qualifying times, were made by sophomore Jacob Brill-Weil (Cambridge, Mass.), freshman Spencer Crouch (Southampton, N.Y.), senior Andrew Peterson (Wallingford, Conn.) and junior Russell Adam (Cheshire, Conn.). Brill-Weil completed the 800 in 1:59.60, while Crouch and Peterson notched times of 1:24.38 and 1:25.13 in the 600. Adam notched a 25-second personal best by completing the 3,000 in 8:54.80, and freshman Ian McAleer (Newfields, N.H.) broke the school record in the 60-meter dash by clocking in at 7.36 seconds.

Connecticut College will head back to the Boston Area to compete at the Valentine Invitational next weekend.
