Staten Island, N.Y. - Georgian Court's men's and women's track teams made it a clean sweep at Saturday evening's ECC Indoor Track & Field Championships, as both claimed conference titles.
Georgian Court's men's team won its second ECC Championship in three years, while the women's team earned it's first-ever ECC indoor title.
The men's team was dominant, topping runner-up St. Thomas Aquinas by a margin of 194-113. The Lions especially excelled in the field portion of the meet, winning four of the six events and adding runner-up finishes in the two they did not win. Georgian Court also picked up three wins on the track.
The Lions' individual winners included Charles Wolef-Fields (60m - 6.92), Chukwuebizie Anuamadi (800m - 1:56.70), Evan Boyce (pole vault - 3.80m), Devin Martin (triple jump - meet record 14.11m), Williams Golsboroguh (shot put - 15.87m), and Troy Bass (weight throw - 14.96m). The men's distance medley relay team of Nolan Czech, Jake Thoms, Nicholas Claudeo, and Jarod Brzyski were also victorious in a time of 10:45.11.
On the women's side, the winner of the meet was still in doubt heading into the final event, with Georgian Court leading Roberts Wesleyan by just three points. The Lions topped the Redhawks by less than one second to hold on and claim their first-ever ECC Indoor Championship by a final score of 111-106.
The Lions won just four events on the evening but compiled lots of points with seven top-three finishes. The wins for Georgian Court came from Aretha Edwards (200m - 25.52), Aniyah Russell (long jump - 5.58m), Lyric Green (triple jump - 11.55m), and Stephanie Bock (shot put - 12.10m).
In other notable performances, three-time ECC Indoor Athlete of the Year, St. Jacob Diodonet of St. Thomas Aquinas, won both the 200m and 400m dashes in meet-record breaking time. He finished in 21.82 in the 200m and crossed the line in 48.11 in the 400m. Roberts Wesleyan's Ashley Watson and Christopher Sims were also multi-event winners as both crossed the finish line first in the 3000m and 5000m.
The only other meet record to fall was in the long jump. St. Thomas Aquinas' Dante Brown broke his own record with a leap of 7.21m.
