Three Individuals and Two Relays Earn USTFCCCA All-Region Accolades

New Orleans, LA --- Paced by sophomore Alex Rus (Newton, MA), three individuals and two relays garnered U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Region accolades for finishing the outdoor track & field season in the top five of their respective events.

Rus clocked the third-ranked 400-meter dash in a title performance at the NEWMAC Championships. He was also part of the relay teams that handed in school-record times at the MIT Last Chance Qualifier. The NCAA-bound 4x400m consisting of Rus, senior Paul-Henry Schoenhagen (Cleveland Heights, OH), sophomore Nick Fleury (Hopkinton, NH) and senior Warren Staver (Centreville, MD) handed in a New England best 3:13.69 while the 4x100m of Fleury, junior Antoine Harris (Southington, CT), Rus and sophomore William Kopellas (Needham, MA) ended the season ranked third with a time of 41.61. Staver was also recognized in the 400m with the fifth-ranked time of 48.38 that achieved at the All-New England Championships.

Sophomore Sydney Packard (Georgetown, MA) led New England wire-to-wire in the 800-meter run. The NEWMAC champion in the 800m and 1,500m, and Division III New England champion in the shorter race, initially led the nation with a 2:09.34 at the Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Invitational and later posted a 2:09.27 at the All-New England Championships. The sophomore's 1,500m time of 4:31.08 at the NEWMAC Championships was ranked third in the region.

Packard and the 4x400m will be joined by Lea Strangio on their journey to Wisconsin to compete at the NCAA Division III Championships this weekend at UW La Crosse. READ MORE
