STORRS, Conn. The Quinnipiac University men's outdoor track team ran in the UConn Spring Invitational at the George J. Sherman Family Sports Complex. The Bobcats' meet was highlighted by the 800-meter race that saw three members of the team finish in the top 10. Senior Chris Foster (Mystic, Conn.) posted a personal-best time of 1:59.17 in the event to lead Quinnipiac with a fifth-place finish.
Crossing the line just behind Foster in the 800 was freshman Sean Ramsey (Southbury, Conn.) in seventh place with a time of 1:59.51. Freshman Dan Roark (Dracut, Mass.) rounded out the trio of Bobcats in the top 10 as he crossed the line with a time of 2:00.25, good for ninth overall. Roark also ran in the 1500 meters, finishing eighth overall in a personal-best time of 4:02.17.
Quinnipiac's 4x400-meter relay team finished 3rd at UConn in 3:36.04. The four members of the Bobcats that made up the relay team were Ramsey, Frankie DiSomma (Sparta, N.J.), John Beckshaw (Medford, Mass.) and David Coppola (Reading, Mass.).
"I was pleased with the 1500 and 800 today," said Head Coach Shawn Green. "We focused a lot of our attention on getting our distance runners some speed work and they did a great job with that this afternoon."
The Bobcats next run on Tuesday, April 21, as they travel to Worcester, Mass., to run at the Holy Cross Invitational.
