Enos sets Bates, ECAC weight throw records, leads men's track to 5th place

NEW YORK -- Bates College senior Sean Enos broke former teammate David Pless's school record and former Bobcat Chris Murtagh's ECAC record in the weight throw, leading the Bobcats to fifth place out of 56 scoring teams at the ECAC Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships, which concluded Saturday at the 168th Street Armory.

Enos heaved the 35-pound weight over the 20-meter mark twice and topped out at 20.17 meters, or 66 feet and 2.25 inches, which stands as the seventh-farthest single weight throw in Division III history.

Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) also won the ECAC shot put title on Friday (58-4), and has swept both throwing events in four straight championship meets: State of Maine, New England Division III, Open New Englands and ECACs.

Enos scored 20 of Bates' 37 points at the meet, only five shy of meet winner Amherst. The defending meet champion Bobcats finished in the top five at the meet for the fifth straight time (Bates didn't compete in the 2013 meet). Fourth-place Salisbury (38) nipped Bates by a point, while WPI was sixth with 34. Amherst (42) edged Brockport State (41.5) and Cortland State (41.5) for first place.

Enos has moved both the shot and the weight farther than the week before for four straight weeks, beginning with the BU Valentine Invitational on Feb. 13.

Enos's close friend and former teammate Pless, the three-time NCAA champion in the shot put and a 10-time All-American at Bates, owned Bates' former weight throw record of 65-11.25, a mark he set in 2013. Murtagh, a former teammate of Pless's and a 2011 Bates graduate, owned the former meet record of 19.43 meters, which Enos surpassed by 74 centimeters.

Other scoring (top-eight), All-ECAC performances by the Bobcats included:

Bates placed sixth in the 4x400 relay in 3:22.54, with a new lineup of sophomore Colin Kraft (Northborough, Mass.), first-year Rob Flynn (Bedford, N.H.), senior Eric Wainman (Glastonbury, Conn.) and sophomore Patrick Griffin (Harvard, Mass.).
Another all-new Bates lineup also placed sixth in the 4x800 relay, at 7:55.60: junior Gregg Heller (Walla Walla, Wash.), senior Zach Polich (Westborough, Mass.), first-year Jack Kiely (Severna Park, Md.) and first-year Ben Tonelli (Seattle, Wash.) did the honors.
Junior Nick Margitza (Waterville, Maine) took third place in the shot put at 52-5.5 to score six more points for the Bobcats on Friday.
Senior Michael Horowicz (Medfield, Mass.) placed seventh in the 5,000-meter run in 15:13.77.
Bates competes this Friday and Saturday, March 13-14, at the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships, to be held at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, N.C. The Bobcats will learn Monday which individuals have been selected to compete.

Bates women take 8th, All-America honors in distance medley relay at NCAAs

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Bates women's track and field team placed eighth in the distance medley relay race Friday night at the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships, earning All-America honors for sophomore Jessica Wilson, sophomore Claire Markonic, and senior captains Sarah Fusco and Elena Jay.

The Bobcat quartet finished the race in 12:01.71, outpacing ninth-place Tufts by 7.91 seconds to claim the final team point and final All-America placement in the field of 14 squads. Wilson (Cumberland, Maine) led off in the 1,200-meter leg, followed by Markonic (Millerton, N.Y.) in the 400 meters, Fusco (Cheshire, Conn.) in the 800 and finished off by Jay (West Hartford, Conn.) in the 1,600.

It is the third time in the past four years that Bates has finished in the top eight in the DMR at NCAAs. Fusco has been a part of all three and gains her third career All-America honor. It is the second for Markonic, who reprised her role from a year ago, and the first for both Jay and Wilson.

St. Thomas (Minn.) won the race in 11:45.26, followed by MIT, Chicago, Middlebury, Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Carleton, Washington University and Bates. Tufts, Williams, Johns Hopkins and St. Norbert were left out of the scoring.

Bates has one more athlete competing at NCAAs in first-year Sally Ceesay (Bronx, N.Y.), who is the 10th seed out of 17 athletes in the triple jump. The event gets started on Saturday at 1:30pm.

Enos 5th in weight throw, men's DMR 8th at NCAAs

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Bates senior Sean Enos picked up his sixth career All-America award on Friday, placing fifth in the 35-pound weight throw with a final effort of 64-3.25 at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships.

Bates also placed eighth in the distance medley relay among other standout performances on the day. Senior John Stansel (Newburyport, Mass.) qualified for the finals in the mile, and senior Eric Wainman (Glastonbury, Conn.) took third place on the first day of the heptathlon.

Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) stood in fifth place after the first three rounds at 19.18 meters, and joined the other top nine for three more rounds in the finals. Mount Union senior Sean Donnelly won in a record 71-4.25.

He was passed by two competitors before vaulting into fourth place on his final attempt of 19.59 meters, or 64 feet and 3.25 inches. Wisconsin-La Crosse senior Grant Havard passed Enos on his final attempt, putting the Bates captain back where he started when finals began. All 15 competitors in the event were either juniors or seniors, and Donnelly, Enos and Havard all rank among the top 10 all-time in Division III history.

Enos finished eighth in the weight throw a year ago. He competes in the shot put tomorrow at 10am as the fourth seed. Enos placed second in the event a year ago.

Bates' DMR team qualified for the meet with Stansel running the anchor 1,600-meter leg, but after making mile final earlier Friday afternoon, the Bobcats substituted in first-year Rob Flynn into the lineup, shuffling the legs run by two other team members. Junior Gregg Heller (Walla Walla, Wash.) still led off in the 1,200-meter leg, followed by Flynn in the 400, sophomore Patrick Griffin (Harvard, Mass.) in the 800 and senior Mark McCauley (Cumberland, Maine) in the 1,600. McCauley outsprinted Ramapo College's Jeremy Hernandez down the final 20 meters to claim eighth place for the Bobcats in 10:04.73 -- just five hundredths of a second ahead of Ramapo for the final team point and final All-America slot available in the event.

The Bates quartet is Bates' third All-American DMR squad in the past four years, yet McCauley is the only repeat performer from either of the past two, and he ran the 800-meter leg a year ago. It is McCauley's second career All-America honor, and the first for Flynn, Griffin and Heller.

Wainman, the New England Division III heptathlon champion, is in outstanding position to pick up his first All-America honor on Saturday, with three events of strength remaining for him (60 hurdles, pole vault and 1,000 meters). In Friday's competition, Wainman was second out of 15 men in the high jump, at 6-4.25 and fifth in the shot put (39-5).

Stansel ran the eighth-fastest time out of 15 men in the mile trial, finishing the second of two heats in 4:15.33. The 10 top finishers run in Saturday's final at 1:40pm.

Sean Enos All-America performances:

2015 Indoor: Weight Throw (5th)
2014 Outdoor: Discus (4th)
2014 Outdoor: Hammer (4th)
2014 Indoor: Shot Put (2nd)
2014 Indoor: Weight Throw (8th)
2013 Outdoor: Discus (4th)
