WASHINGTON - On the second day of the USA Track & Field Championships held at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa, two members of the Georgetown University men's track & field team advanced in the junior 1,500-meter run. This is the second of a four-day event taking place on the campus of Drake University.

Darren Fahy (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) and Michael Lederhouse (Glen Ellyn, Ill./Glenbard West) both competed in the first heat of the junior 1,500-meter first round. Fahy finished third with a time of 3:51.54 with Lederhouse following up in fifth with a time of 3:52.38. The duo will continue in the semifinals of the event to be held on Saturday, June 21 and slated for 3:14 p.m. ET.

Max Darrah (South Yarmouth, Mass./Dennis-Yarmouth Regional) competed in the men's steeplechase today in the second of two heats. He finished 25th overall and 12th in his heat with a time of 9:16.95.

During yesterday's competition, All-American Chelsea Cox (Manahawkin, New Jersey/Southern Regional) competed against the best competition in the country in the women's 800-meter preliminary and finished 24th overall with a time of 2:05.00.

The women's 1,500-meter semifinal saw current Hoya All-American Rachel Schneider (Dover, N.H./St. Thomas Aquinas) race against a stacked field that included former Hoyas Treniere (Clement) Moser and Renee Tomlin. Moser took the top time in the semifinals (4:11.20) and advanced to the finals, held on Saturday, June 22 at 5:46 p.m. ET. Tomlin finished 13th with a time of 4:15.60, falling just shy of the advancing crowd.

 

 

Andrew Springer, coming off an impressive collegiate season running much longer distances (5,000m and 10,000m), competed in the men's 1,500-meter semifinals. He timed in at 3:55.00 but did not advance to the finals. Former Hoyas Liam Boylan-Pett who spent his fifth year on the Hilltop ran 3:47.88 but also missed the finals of the event.

The Hoyas will continue to compete through the weekend at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa for the USA Track & Field Championships.
