Hoyas Split Sites, Run Strong Times at Mt. SAC Relays and Larry Ellis Invitational

April 20, 2013

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown track & field team split sites this weekend with three destinations on the docket. A small contingent traveled to Walnut, Calif., for the Mt. SAC Relays while another group went to the Larry Ellis Invitational in Princeton, N.J., while another cluster stayed close to home in nearby Baltimore, Md., to compete at Morgan State University.

At Mt. SAC, the Hoyas sent a small contingent of distance runners to compete in different sections of the 5,000-meter run. In the men's open A division, John Murray finished 24th with a time of 14:15.89. In the open C division, Silas Frantz ran 14:26.81, to take fifth in that race. Both are BIG EAST qualifying times.

Kirsten Kasper took the track in the A division of the women's 5,000-meter run and finished ninth with a time of 16:23.55, enough to get her to the BIG EAST Championships.

Back on the east coast, the Blue & Gray traveled to Princeton, N.J., for the two-day Larry Ellis Invitational. On the men's side, Dylan Sorensen was the first of a trio of Hoyas to qualify for the conference championships as he finished third with a time of 8:59.62. Ryan Gil finished sixth (9:02.14) while Max Darrah placed 13th (9:15.46).

In the men's 5,000-meter run Ben Furcht finished 14th with a time of 14:28.42.

On the women's side, All-American Madeline Chambers finished 11th in the elite division of the women's 1,500-meter run followed by Rachel Paul in 26th (4:35.76). In the open division, Heather Martin's 4:37.73 was good enough for seventh place.

 

 

The women's 5,000-meter run saw Samantha Nadel finish eighth with a time of 16:43.50 followed by Jenna Davidner in 22nd place (17:10.37).

Sarah Cotton finished 10th in the women's 3,000-meter steeplechase, timing in at 10:44.57, enough to qualify for the postseason championships. Also qualifying for the postseason is Shanique Dasilva in the elite division of the women's 800-meter run with a 13th-place time of 2:10.05.

Next on the schedule for the Hoyas is the 119th edition of the Penn Relays - the world's oldest and largest relay carnival. The three-day event will take place April 25-27 at historic Franklin Field.
