In the 60 meter dash, the short sprinters set the track on fire as Henry Buren '22, Nehemiah McGowan '21 and Elijah Ngbokoli '20 swept the event, placing first, second, and third, respectively. Both Buren and McGowan broke the previous school record in the event held by Buren, as they ran 7.00 and 7.02 seconds. Buren and McGowan returned to the track for the 200 meter dash, also placing first and second in the event to lock up critical points. Ryan Prenosil '21 delivered his first victory of the day in the 800, using a strong final kick to win the race. Braedon Fiume '23 ran a well-executed race to place second in the 1,000. Juniors Billy Massey and Ajay Sarathy placed third and fourth in the 3,000 meters, respectively, to finish up the individual events for the day.
With just the relays remaining, the Mammoths needed a victory in both the 4x800 and 4x400 to win the meet. Alfred Kibowen '23 led off the 4x800, handing off to Braedon Fiume '23, who ran a great leg after his 1000 race less than one hour before the relay. Braedon handed off to Spencer Ferguson-Dryden, who closed the gap on Williams to hand off to anchor Will Spurrell '23 in the lead, who brought the team home with a victory.
With just the 4x400 remaining, the score was tied and the Mammoths needed to win the relay to win the meet. Ben Wadsworth '22 led off in his second event of the day to hand off to Ellis Phillips-Galucci '23 in the lead, who handed off to Matt Gelin '23 in the lead. Matt made a gutsy move for the lead, and handed off to anchor Ryan Prenosil just behind Williams. Ryan ran an incredible anchor leg for the Mammoths, establishing a significant lead in the second lap to win the relay and break the 31-year Williams winning streak! The men's team couldn't have been more excited and it was great to see them come together as a group.
