The Men’s indoor track and field team had a strong performance behind senior health science major Stefan Adams’ first place 400-meter dash finish at the 36th Yale Intercollegiate Track Classic at the Coxe Cage on Jan. 13.
Adams, of Jamaica, New York, finished with a time of 49.53 seconds in the 400-meter to earn the win while adding a second-place finish with a 22.24 second time in the 200-meter dash. Freshman undecided student Jaelin Hood, of Freeport, participated in the same events, placing third in the 200-meter at 22.87 seconds and fourth in the 400-meter with a 51.26 second finish. Freshman undecided student Jahmel Johnson, of Haverstraw, took fifth place in the 60-meter dash at 7.08 seconds.
Junior Angelo Fradelakis, of Patchogue and sophomore forensic science major Twary McKenzie, of Huntington, led the Pioneer field athletes with two top-five finishes. Fradelakis earned third place in the weight throw with a 12.68-meter toss, while McKenzie came in fifth in the triple jump with a distance of 12.53 meters.
”The 400-meter is my main event, so it felt pretty routine as far as the win and time ran,” said Adams. “As far as the 200-meter, [there] is always room to improve.”
