Quad Cup III
BATES MEN TAKE SECOND AT COAST GUARD
NEW LONDON, Conn. - Despite a shorthanded team because of illness, the Bates College men's track and field team placed second at a Quad Cup meet held at the United States Coast Guard Academy.
The meet was highlighted by a dominant performance in the 35-pound weight throw, where the Bobcats took the top four spots. Senior Lucas Adams (Nottingham, N.H.) remained undefeated in the event, while classmate Rob Davis (Rehoboth, Mass.) qualified for the NCAA Division III championships with his second-place toss of 52-10 3/4. Sophomores Greg Hurley (Arlington, Mass.) and Jaime Sawler (Stratham, N.H.) placed third and fourth in the weight throw respectively, while Sawler picked up his first career indoor track win in the shot put.
Bates had two other individual winners on the afternoon. Senior captain Adam Thompson (So. Portland, Maine) won the pole vault with a vault of 13-3, while junior sprinter Kevin Jackson (Woodbury, N.J.) took the 55-meter hurdles in 8.08 seconds, in addition to scoring in the high jump and long jump. The Bobcats also won the 3200-meter relay. The team returns to Slovenski Track next weekend for a Co-Ed Quad Cup at noon.
