Five Huskies Headed to NCAA Division III Championships

GORHAM, Maine -- Five members of the University of Southern Maine men’s track and field team are headed to the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field National Championships that starts Thursday at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y.

Senior Jamie Ruginski (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) and the 4 x 400-meter relay foursome of 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) were among the qualifiers announced Sunday morning. Ruginski is the fourth seed in the long jump and the top seed in the triple jump. There are 20 competitors in each event. The relay is the 12th seed among the 16 teams headed to St. Lawrence.

On Thursday, Ruginski will compete in the long jump. He qualified for the event with a school record jump of 7.38 meters (24-2 ½) at the ECAC Division III Championships. Ruginski, the 2014 Division III national champion in the triple jump, is the top seed with his school record mark of 15.61 meters (51-2 ¾) at the State Championships. The triple jump competition will take place on Saturday.

The relay, which earned All-American honors during the indoor season, posted its qualifying time of 3:1.4.11 en route to winning the NEICAAA New England championship. The quartet will run their preliminary-round race on Thursday evening. The 4 x 400 final is the last event of the meet on Saturday.

USM’s Ruginski going for fourth national title in triple jump
The Huskies' senior is seeded first in the NCAA Division III championships.

GORHAM — There’s always a crossroad in an athlete’s career.

For Jamie Ruginski, it came in his sophomore year at the University of Southern Maine. He had just finished ninth in the triple jump in the NCAA Division III national indoor track and field championships – 2 inches shy of achieving All-America status. He walked off the track while everyone else went to the podium.

Ruginski Named USTFCCCA Regional Field Athlete of the Year

GORHAM, Maine -- University of Southern Maine senior Jamie Ruginski (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) was among the USTFCCCA (United States Track and Field/Cross Country Coaches Association) Division III Outdoor Regional Athletes of the Year that were announced Tuesday. USTFCCCA headquarters are located in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The USTFCCCA honored the top track athletes and field athletes for both men and women in eight regions, as well as the top men’s and women’s head coaches and assistant coaches. The regional award winners were determined by a vote of USTFCCCA member coaches. The regional winners are now eligible for national honors.

The NCAA Division III indoor national champion in the triple jump this past winter, Ruginski will be competing this week at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the long jump and triple jump. Ruginski is the defending champion in the triple jump, and finished second in the long jump at last year’s NCAA outdoor meet.

The top seed in the triple jump and fourth seed in the long jump, Ruginski has the top triple jump mark in Division III this season at 15.61 meters (51-2 ¾) set at the State of Maine Championships last month. That mark broke the school, meet and facility (Bates College) record.

A five-time Little East Conference Field Athlete of the Week selection this spring, Ruginski swept the long jump and triple jump titles at the State, New England Alliance, Little East Conference and New England Division III Championships. He won the triple jump and placed third in the long jump at the NEICAAA New England Championships, and placed second in the long jump at the ECAC Division III Championships. Ruginski’s long jump mark (7.38 meters/24-2 ½) at the ECAC meet last week broke his own school record.

Ruginski was the 2014 USTFCCCA Division III Indoor New England Region and National Field Athlete of the Year.

The NCAA Division III meet begins Thursday and is being held at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y.

NCAA Division III Outdoor National Championships

Ruginski Wins National Title in the Long Jump

CANTON, N.Y. -- University of Southern Maine senior Jamie Ruginski (Buxton, Maine/Bonny Eagle) added another national title to his resume on Thursday when he won the long jump at the 2015 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field National Championships being held at St. Lawrence University.

The fourth seed coming into Thursday’s competition, Ruginski was fourth with a mark of 7.22 meters (23-8 ¼) after the three rounds of preliminary jumps that whittled the field from 20 competitors down to nine finalists.

On his first jump in the finals, Ruginski landed a school record leap of 7.47 meters (24-6 ¼) to take the lead from sophomore Alexander Niemiec of Springfield College. Ruginski’s mark stood up through the final two rounds of jumps to give him his first national title in the long jump. Niemiec finished in the runner-up spot with his leap of 7.44 meters (24-5) that came on his first jump of the day.

The national title is the fourth of Ruginski’s career, and he also picked up his seventh All-American citation. Ruginski is the defending titlist outdoors in the triple jump, and has won the past two indoor national titles the triple jump. Ruginski will go for a fifth national title when he competes in the triple jump on Saturday.

USM’s men’s 4 x 400-meter relay will compete later today (7:55 p.m.) in its preliminary round race.

Enos places 7th in discus at NCAAs; Wainman 7th through first day of decathlon

CANTON, N.Y. -- Bates senior Sean Enos claimed his eighth career All-America award, and his third ever in the discus throw, as he took seventh place Thursday at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at St. Lawrence University.

Bates' other athlete at the meet, Enos's fellow senior captain Eric Wainman (Glastonbury, Conn.), stands in seventh place in the decathlon among 20 competitors, with 3,514 points, with the first five events completed.

Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) launched the discus a season-best 52.20 meters, or 171 feet and 3 inches, on his second attempt of the day. He entered the event finals in seventh place and remained there through the final three rounds.

Enos won his first All-America honor two years ago in the discus, finishing in fourth place with a 174-9 effort that remains the best of his career.

Enos has one final event left in his illustrious career: he will compete in the hammer throw on Friday, beginning at noon.

Wainman, meanwhile, had his best-ever first day in the decathlon, excelling particularly in the long jump, where he soared a lifetime best 21 feet and 10.25 inches, seventh-farthest in the field. Wainman scored 696 points in the high jump, tying for third place in that event, after clearing 6 feet and 2 inches. Friday's five remaining events are the 110-meter hurdles, the discus throw, the pole vault, the javelin throw and the 1,500 meters.

Erin Silva Closes Out Her Career With All-American Showing at Nationals

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin senior pole vaulter Erin Silva closed out her collegiate career with a sixth-place finish on Thursday at the NCAA Division III Championship.

Silva cleared a height of 3.80 meters to take sixth-place and garner All-American honors for the fourth time in her decorated career. She cleared the height (12 feet, 5.5 inches) in her final attempt.

"It was a classic clutch jump by Erin," said head coach Peter Slovenski. "She had great acceleration off the ground and poise in the air. That clutch jump put her in the top six, and on the all American team for the 4th season."

Silva graduates as the school's record holder in both the indoor and outdoor pole vault with three of her four All-American honors coming at the outdoor championships (2013, '14, '15). Earlier this month she was named as the Lucy Shulman Award winner as Bowdoin's Most Outstanding Female Athlete.

Triple jumper Katharine Krupp will compete for the Polar Bears on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
