Princeton, NJ | In their final meet before the postseason and in another non-scoring outing, the Dolphins’ men’s and women’s indoor track and field sides continued to make great progress in respective heats and competition at the heavily-contested Princeton University Invitational. The event featured a heavy dose of NCAA Division I competition and CSI represented very nicely throughout the morning and afternoon with a handful of athletes in attendance.
CSI could not have started off any better, as decorated freshman Deavion Brown did not miss a beat, posting a time of 8.07 in the 60-meter Dash to place seventh overall in a field of 28, and first among all Division III runners. Sarah Andres also participated in the 60, posting a time of 9.26, good for 28th overall.
In the final heat of the 60, Brown ultimately came in seventh with a finals time of 8.25.
In the 400-meter Dash, Brown was on hand again, and she did not disappoint, as she turned in a time of 1:08.76, good enough to finish 18th overall and third among Division III competitors.
As the distance increased, it was junior Tristiana Adragna’s turn in the 800-meter Run. She would turn in a time of 2:40.11, posting a 13th place finish (seventh among DIII). Up next was Kharyn Ethridge’s time of 5:25.85 in the One-Mile Run, resulting in seventh place out of a field of 23. It was the top time of a DIII runner.
On the men’s side, CSI was represented by Jordan Thompson, who posted a 23.95 in the 200-meter Dash, coming in 13th overall among a field of 33 competitors. Thompson went right back out there for the 400-meter Dash, and posted a mark of 54.77, good for 15th overall among 23 runners.
Liam McMunn was the only other Dolphin to place, posting a terrific fifth-place finish in the 800-meter Run, with a time of 2:02.79.
With the regular season now officially in the books, CSI will turn their attention to the CUNYAC Championship Meet, which will take place next weekend on Saturday, February 23, at 1:00 pm at The New Balance Track & Field Center. It will mark the first CUNYAC Championship the team will be competing in as a varsity program.
