Adams Qualifies Provisionally For Nationals
The Bates College men's indoor track and field team opened its season today with a 109-30 dual meet victory over the University of Southern Maine.
The meet was highlighted by junior weight thrower Lucas Adams (Nottingham, N.H.), who's distance of 53 feet, 5 3/4 inches in the 35-pound weight throw qualified him provisinally for the NCAA Division III national championships. Adams earned All-America honors in the event last year, when he placed sixth overall in the nation.
The Bobcats also got multi-win performances from sophomore Erik Zwick (Virginia Beach, Va.), who won the long jump (20 feet, 10 1/4 inches) and the 200-meter dash (22.8 seconds), an event in which he is the school record holder, and junior Matt Twiest (Albuquerque, N.M.), who captured the mile (4:25.6) and the 800-meters (1:58.4).
The Huskies victories came from Kevin Faria in the 55-meter dash (6.6 secods), Byron Watson in the high jump (5 feet, 10 inches) and Paul Johnson in the 5,000-meters (15:43.8).
