Old Goats take to the New England Championship Stage
Sunday 2/23 the goats closed the indoor season at Harvard.
The day started with Sara setting the tone with a 5th place finish in the 5k in a club record 18:55! Matt Dynan then ran a speedy 15:46. Sara doubled back and ran a nice 5:45 in the mile. Ryan O'Connell then ran a 4:25 good for 7th in the mile, and Will Shahbazian made his debut in 5:04! Jack then emerged as high jump CHAMPION in 1.93m (6' 4") and a new club indoor record! He then long jumped 6.29m (20' 7.75") good for 7th place and tripled with a club record 25.29 in the 200m. The meet ended with some good old relay fun, with Matt and Ryan doubling back with Kyle G and Dave for a DMR where they got 2nd in 11:10. They were pushed to the limit by the mixed team of Sara (who was tripling back!), Jack (QUADRUPLING BACK), Will and Emily who placed 2nd among mixed teams in 13:14.
Meet MVPs were Jack for the men and Sara for the women, but we want to thank everyone who ran for us this indoor season, you've all helped the goats grow and we will see you in the spring!
Old Goats tune up before
Sara also showed up Friday and set a new 3k club record in 10:42.13!Austin, Dave, Kyle and Matt showed up to BU to run an attempt at the DMR club record, and narrowly missed it running 10:40.44. Saturday Dave ran a 54.36 and Ryan set a 5k club record in a blazing 15:04.05
Old Goats compete at Greater Boston Track Club Meet
As the indoor season gets into full swing, the first big team meet of the season took place at Harvard on Sun. 1/19/2020. This meet was a nice early season look at the goats and what a sweet look it was.
Jack DeVine made his season debut in Long Jump, setting a season best and club indoor record jump of 20' 10.75" (6.37m). Jimmy Doty led of the running events with a club record 39.60 in the 300m, while at the same time Carley was taking 3rd in pole vault with a club record of 11' 8" (3.56m). Next on the track Austin ran in the invitational heat of the mile (in which the rabbit was a familiar face; friend of the club Ryan Wittenberg!) and came in at 4:24.90. Ryan Moran clocked in a 5:10.09 in his first run back since June and it was sure great to see him back out on the track. Dan Mortimer ran a cool 4:45.26. Jon Stiles made his club debut in the 800m with a PB (and personal first!) of 2:32.48. Jack DeVine continued his club record setting day with a high jump of 6' 2.75" (1.90m) good for 2nd place! The club finished out the day with the men teaming up for the 4x440yd relay!
Looking ahead, some goats may brave the very competitive Terrier invitational at Boston University, while others will continue their training and perhaps take to the slopes. The next big event team event is the Billy Brockmueller Indoor Invitational hosted by the Brown Running club where the goats will be out, and in greater numbers. #HerdUp
Old Goats head north for Dartmouth Relays
A trio of old goats took on the Dartmouth relays on Friday, Jan 10. Kyle M. opened the day with a 4:33.63 in the mile. Dave clocked in a season best 55.03 in the 400m, then for a fun tune up ran a 2:13.54 in the 800m. Sara finished the meet off in style by establishing a new club record of 10:50.45 in the 3000m.
