Ceesay places 16th in triple jump to conclude NCAA Indoor Championships

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Bates first-year student Sally Ceesay placed 16th among 17 competitors in the triple jump, closing out the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships for the Bates women's team.

The Bobcats scored one team point, earned from Friday's eighth-place finish in the distance medley relay race, putting Bates in a 10-way tie for 58th place in the meet's final standings among the 67 teams that scored points for top-eight performances .

The lone first-year student-athlete in the triple jump field, Ceesay (Bronx, N.Y.) fouled on her first attempt before triple-jumping to a distance of 35-3.25 on her second attempt. She fouled on her third attempt and missed finals, settling for 16th place.

"Sally had a great season," said head coach Jay Hartshorn. "This is her first year competing in the triple jump, and she broke the team record and earned a spot as the only freshman in the event at NCAAs."

All-Americans all: Wainman in heptathlon, Enos in shot put, Stansel in mile

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Bates men's track and field team had a big second day of the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships, with three team captains picking up three point-scoring, All-America performances in three individual events.

Bates' seven athletes at the meet combined to score 16 points, tying Wisconsin-Whitewater for ninth place out of 66 teams that scored points for top-eight performances.

Senior Eric Wainman (Glastonbury, Conn.) took third place in the heptathlon, breaking his own Bates record in the event by 207 points, with 5,201. Senior Sean Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) placed sixth in the shot put for his seventh career All-America award, and senior John Stansel (Newburyport, Mass.) placed seventh in the mile for his second career All-America honor.

Enos started the day for the Bobcats by becoming the second seven-time All-American in program history, trailing only former teammate and 10-time All-American David Pless '13 in that category. Enos also pulled into a tie with seven-time All-American diver Andrew Hastings '02 for the second-most All-America nods by any Bates male athlete in school history.

Enos's 16.99-meter effort in the second round was his best effort of the trials. He bettered that at 17.20 on his first attempt of the finals, then moved ahead of Mount Union senior Sean Donnelly (Friday's weight throw champion) on his final attempt of 17.52 meters, or 57 feet, 5.75 inches. Wisconsin-Eau Claire senior Roger Steen won the event and broke Pless's meet record at 61-8.5.

Wainman finished the two-day heptathlon as the third runner to cross the finish line in the 1,000 meters, with a time of 2:45.83. He was no lower than eighth in the field of 15 in any of the seven events that comprise the heptathlon. He becomes Bates' first All-American in an indoor "multi" event (pentathlon or heptathlon) and joins decathletes David Hardison '13 and Joe Northrup '05 as Bates' third All-American in a multi event.

With only 5.17 seconds separating first place from 10th place in the mile, Stansel took seventh place in the middle of a tight pack, just 0.01 seconds behind sixth-place Jamie Vander Veer of Central College and 0.09 ahead of Wisconsin-Platteville senior Joel Walden. He becomes Bates' third All-American in the indoor mile or its predecessor, the 1,500 meters, joining Jamie Goodberlet '85 in 1985 and Matt Twiest '00 in 1998. Stansel made Saturday's final with the eighth-fastest trial time on Friday (4:15.33).

HALE, SOMMERS BOTH FINISH 12TH AT NCAA MEN'S INDOOR MEET

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Colby College's Jeff Hale (Waterville, Maine) and Brian Sommers (Acton, Mass.) each finished in 12th place in their events at the NCAA Division III Men's Indoor Track and Field Championships on Friday at the JDL Fast Track.

MORNING SENTINEL FEATURE ON HALE: http://www.centralmaine.com/2015/03/12/ ... pionships/

Hale was running in the 5,000 meters and had a time of 14 minutes, 47.58 seconds. He came into the event as the 10th seed at a time of 14:35.08. Hale was boxed inside toward the back of the pack for much of the race and tried to make a late move with about six or seven laps to go. He may have moved as high as 10th place before dropping back.

Hale finished a fine indoor season, including the 5,000-meter title at the Open New England Championships.

Sommers was running in a 400 dash preliminary race and finished with a time of 49.86. He came into Friday as the sixth seed at 48.97. Sommers, who was third in the 400 at the Open New England meet, needed to finish in the top eight to advance to Saturday's championship final.

Colby's women's 1,600 relay team will compete Saturday at 5 p.m.

Ruginski Wins NCAA Division III Triple Jump Title Again

4x400 Relay Finishes Seventh to Earn All-America Honors

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- University of Southern Maine senior Jamie Ruginski (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) successfully defended his NCAA Division III triple jump title on Saturday to help the Huskies finish in a tie for sixth place among the 66 teams that scored at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships held at the JDL Fast Track facility in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Ruginski came from behind on his final attempt to win the national title landing a mark of 14.94 meters (49-0 ¼). Third after the three preliminary-round jumps, Ruginski took the lead with his fourth-round jump of 14.72 meters (48-3 ½). Senior Chris Perry of Bridgewater (Mass.) State University, the leader after the preliminary rounds, retook the lead in the fifth round with a jump of 14.75 (48-4 ¾) setting the stage for Ruginski. In the final round of jumps, Ruginski hit his best mark of the competition while Perry was not able to improve upon his mark.

The NCAA title is the third of Ruginski’s career at USM. He swept the indoor and outdoor triple jump titles last year.

The Huskies 4x400-meter relay team came home with All-America honors after finishing seventh. Junior Zach Miller (Rochester, N.H./Spaulding), senior Kevin Desmond (Monmouth, Maine/Monmouth Academy) and juniors Jeremy Collins (Standish, Maine/Bonny Eagle) and Dan Webb (Acton, Maine/Sanford) combined for a time of 3 minutes, 18.56 seconds. Their time was the fourth fastest in school history.

On Friday, Ruginski earned All-America honors in the long jump with his second-place finish. Ruginski had a jump of 7.16 meters (23-6) to take the runner-up spot behind senior Dominique Neloms of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Neloms won the event with a leap of 7.37 meters (24-2 ¼).

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire edged in-state rival University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for the team title, 62-20. Mount Union College was third with 40 points followed by St. Olaf College with 33 and North Central College (Ill.) with 31. Southern Maine and Bridgewater State tied for sixth with 20 points.

COLBY RELAY TEAM SIXTH AT NCAA MEET, EARN ALL-AMERICAN HONORS

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Colby College's 1,600-meter relay team came into the NCAA Division III Women's Indoor Track and Field Championships as the 12th and final seed, but the Mules left as All-Americans after placing sixth in the event on Saturday at the national meet.

Emily Doyle (Duxbury, Mass.), Michaela Athanasopoulos (Fitzwilliam, N.H.), McKayla Blanch (Tewksbury, Mass.), and Emily Tolman (Scarborough, Maine) combined for a time of 3 minutes, 53.12 seconds.

"I was so proud of them,” said Emily Hackert, Colby’s interim head coach. “They were so excited just to make it, but they also knew they were ready to step up to their competition, and they showed it with how they competed."

The Colby women had to sweat out making the national meet, but made the most of their opportunity Saturday. Wisconsin-La Crosse won the event in 3:49.89.

Doyle and Tolman are All-Americans for a fourth time in indoor and outdoor relay racing. The two earned indoor and outdoor honors in the 1,600 relay as first-years and were in indoor last year.

Athanasopoulos earned her second All-American honor, both during the indoor season. She teamed with Tolman, Doyle, and Frances Onyilagha '14 to finish seventh in the 1,600 last year.

Blanch took over Onyilagha's spot and earns her first honor. She also plays on the Colby field hockey team.

Helderman Named LEC Rookie Field Athlete of the Year

GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced its annual men’s indoor track and field awards on Wednesday following voting by the head coaches, and University of Southern Maine freshman Ron Helderman (Madison, Maine) was named the Rookie Field Athlete of the Year.

Helderman is the fourth USM competitor to receive the honor since the awards program began in the 2007-08 season. He joins Mattia Zagon (2008-09), Anthony Stanton (2009-10) and Tony Sen (2012-13) as recipients of the award.

In addition to Helderman’s individual honor, the Huskies’ coaching staff, led by first-year head coach Ryan Harkleroad, was picked as the LEC Men’s Indoor Track and Field Coaching Staff of the Year. Assisting Harkleroad this season were Sarah Burkhardt (jumps), Mike Drummey (pole vault), Charlie Ewers (sprints and hurdles), and Becky O’Brien (throws). This is the first year that the conference has honored a coaching staff after selecting an individual Coach of the Year the previous seven years.

Five times during the recently completed indoor campaign Helderman was selected as the conference’s Rookie Field Athlete of the Week. He also was named the ECAC Division III New England Co-Rookie of the Week on one occasion. Helderman combined with classmates Cory Dyer (Jacksonville, Fla./Oakleaf) and Jordhan Levine (Waterville, Maine) to sweep the LEC’s nine weekly rookie field athlete awards this season.

Competing in the pole vault and high jump this season, Helderman won three competitions in the pole vault and finished second three times. Helderman took the top spot on the podium in the pole vault at the USM Invitational I (4.27 meters/14-0), the Bowdoin Invitational (4.30 meters/14-1 ¼), and the USM Invitational II (4.35 meters/14-3 ¼). He also posted a first-place finish in the high jump at the Bates Invitational (1.88 meters/6-2).

Helderman earned All-Little East Conference honors in the pole vault after finishing second at the championships meet with a season-best vault of 4.40 meters (14-5 ¼). He also scored in the high jump and 60-meter hurdles. Helderman also received Division III All-New England honors after finishing in second place (4/35 meters/14-3 ¼) at the Division III New England Championships.

The coaching staff guided the Huskies to their fifth LEC title in the last seven years, and 12th since 1999-2000, and a second-place finish in the New England Alliance Championships. The Huskies also had a program best fourth-place finish at the Division III New England Championships and at the NEICAAA New England Championships.

USM capped off an outstanding season tying for sixth place at the recent NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships, and five athletes earned All-America honors.

Dostie Sweeps LEC Track and Field Athlete of the Year Honors

GORHAM, Maine -- University of Southern Maine senior Peyton Dostie (Standish, Maine/Bonny Eagle) added another chapter to her athletic legacy, as she became the first athlete in the history of the Little East Conference women’s track and field awards program to sweep the Track Athlete and Field Athlete of Year Awards. The LEC office made the announcement on Wednesday following voting by the head coaches.

Dostie was picked as the Track Athlete of the Year for the second time in her three years at USM. She previously received that award in 2013. Dostie was named the Field Athlete of the Year for the first time.

In addition to Dostie’s two major awards, the University of Southern Maine women’s coaching staff, led by veteran head coach George Towle, was voted the Coaching Staff of the Year. Other members of the Huskies staff are Mike Drummey, Jim Giroux and Becky O’Brien. The staff guided the Huskies to a sweep of the Little East Conference and New England Alliance titles for the 15th consecutive year, and a program best third-place finish at the New England Division III Championships.

This season, Dostie was twice named the LEC Track Athlete of the Week (Jan. 26, Mar. 2), and the Field Athlete of the Week on two occasions (Feb. 16, Feb. 23). She also was named the ECAC Women’s Track and Field Division III New England Athlete of the Week once (Mar. 4).

Dostie capped a brilliant 2014-15 indoor campaign last weekend when she earned NCAA Division III All-America honors in the pentathlon by scoring 3,391 points to finish eighth and ran the anchor leg in the 4x400 relay at the national championships.

At the LEC Championships, Dostie won four titles and finished second in another event to account for 47 points as the Huskies won their 15th consecutive title. Dostie claimed the top spot on the podium in the 60-meter hurdles (9.08 seconds), the 600 meters (1:39.53) and the long jump (5.37 meters/17-7 ½). She shared the high jump title (1.47 meters/4-9 ¾), and finished second in the 200 meters (26.10).

Dostie followed up her LEC performance by winning the pentathlon for the second straight year at the New England Division III Championships with a school record 3,444 points. She also picked up Division III All-New England honors in to 60-meter hurdles (2nd place/8.93) and the long jump (6th place/5.25 meters).

At the NEICAAA New England Championships, Dostie earned All-New England honors in the 400 meters with her school record time of 56.82 seconds, and ran the anchor leg for the Huskies’ fifth-place 4x400 relay that set the school record with its time of 3:51.74. It was that time that qualified the relay for the NCAA championships.

The school record holder indoors in the 55-meter hurdles, 60-meter hurdles, 400 meters, 600 meters and the pentathlon, Dostie is also a member of the school record 4x200 and 4x400 relays. During the 2014-15 season, she eclipsed the 60-meter hurdles record four times, culminating with her current record time of 8.86 seconds set while competing in the pentathlon at the NCAA championships.
