In the 55-meter hurdles, freshman George Houston put up a personal best of 7.80 seconds, while junior Anthony Lorenc posted a personal best in the 55-meter sprint with a time of 6.63. 

Freshman Kevin Christensen won the mile, while his teammate, senior Evan Bush, finished right behind him for the second-place spot. Freshman Andrew Lodge won the 200 with a personal best of 23.38, while junior Robert Abrams took first in the 800-meter running a 1.56; this finish for Abrams was an All-Atlantic Region Track and Field Championship (AARTFC) qualifying time. 

In the relays, the program secured victories in the 4×200, 4×400, and 4×800; this was truly a display of the sprinters ability, as they won nearly every event. 

In the field events, senior Tim Reilly highlighted the category with a 12.71-meter triple jump, good enough for the victory.

Men’s track and field will return to action for the Albany Winter Classic Friday, Feb. 7, at 12 p.m.
