BOSTON, Mass.-- The University of New Hampshire men’s track and field team had a trip to Boston this weekend for the New England Championships and it didn’t turn out as they had hoped, only amassing 23 points in finishing ninth. The University of Connecticut won the championship with 136 points.
The lone bright spots for the ‘Cats came from Jamison Whiting (Salem, N.H.), who has yet to finish second in the poll vault all year, continued that steak by winning the title yet again by vaulting 16 feet 8.75" and Jason Marshall (Piscataway, N.J.) whose time of 7.71 seconds earned him a third place finish in the 55 meter high hurdles. Other top 10 finishers for the Wildcats included Kyle Schneck (Concord, N.H. - 4:08.36) and Kevin Horgan (Ashburnham, Mass. - 4:21.32), who finished fifth and 10th respectively, in the mile. Andrew Thompson’s (Freedom, N.H.) throw of 57’ 3.00" in the weight throw placed him sixth. In the shot put, Mike Wells (Salem, N.H.) finished 10th with a throw of 48’ 8.75".
