The men’s track team hosted another meet at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium on April 23. Scoring 143 points, the Bison finished second overall in a field of eight teams.

“This has been a great outdoor season, and I’m impressed with the way our team has stepped up so far. Our younger guys in particular have really come through with some impressive marks,” Max Prizant ’18 said.

Notable performances in the field events include Nicholas Lombardo ’18, who won the long jump title with a mark of 24-0 ¾. This record is not only a personal best for Lombardo, but also ranks fourth in school history. He also placed second in the triple jump with a leap of 45-8 ½. Joseph Breen ’17 scored for the throwers, finishing second in the shot put and third in the discus. Matthew Fay ’19 placed third in the pole vault, clearing 15-9 ¼.

Even with high winds, the Bison still achieved success in the running events. John Kirna ’16 was runner-up in the 3000-meter steeplechase, finishing in 9:38.32 to secure eight points for the Bison. Will Bordash ’18 placed fourth in the 1,500-meter race, while Ross Pirnie ’17 came in sixth. John Westwood ’16 finished third in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:52.49.

The Orange and Blue will compete one last time in the regular season at the Maroon and Gold Invitational on April 30 before continuing on to the Patriot League Outdoor Championships on May 6-7.
