Boston, MA -
The men's track team competed at the Valentine's Invitational at Boston University on Saturday. Although the meet was an open invite, and therefore did not tally a team score, the Bears came away with several solid performances.
Senior Dallas Dissmore (Princeton, NJ) ran the fastest time of the day in the 500-meter dash, clocking a league leading 1:02.28. The performance moves him to second all-time for Brown in the event.
Sophomore Ozzie Myers (Chittenango, NY) also had a huge personal best in the 3,000-meter run. Myers finished third overall in 8:14.92, ranking him third in the Ivies and putting his name on the top ten board for the first time in his collegiate career. Classmates Ari Zamir (Ridgewood, NJ) and Alex Enscoe (Berkeley, CA) also ran strongly in the event, timing in at 8:27.73 and 8:28.39, respectively. Another sophomore, Nick Sarro (Chatham, NY) clocked 4:14.07 in the mile.
Senior Ray Bobrownicki (Avondale, PA) went back to his winning ways in the high jump, clearing 6-11.75 to top the championship division. Senior Todd Kapostasy (Madison, OH) took second in the college division of the same event. Junior Grant Bowen (Plainwell, MI) cleared 15-1 in the pole vault to tie for seventh.
Sophomore Jamil McClintock (Plainfield, NJ) ran 7.67 in the 55-meter hurdles en route to qualifying for the finals where he placed fifth overall. Sophomore Luke Renick (Warrenton, VA) raced to times of 6.57 and 22.09 in the 55- and 200-meter dashes. Junior Steve Bernardi (Haddon Heights, NJ) marked 22-5 in the long jump.
The marks and times by Dissmore, Myers, Zamir, Enscoe, Sarro, Bobrownicki, McClintock, Renick, Golenor, and Howard were all IC4A qualifiers, even though many had already qualified for the championship meet earlier in the season. The two relays also hit the IC4A standard.
The Bears compete next at the USATF-New England Championships on Saturday at Harvard.
