Minors claims more NE10 titles

Dage Minors claimed his seventeenth and eighteenth career Northeast-10 Conference titles on Sunday as the Bermudian senior led the Franklin Pierce University men's athletics team to an event-best, second-place finish at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts.

Minors picked up another NE10 individual title when he won the 800 metres, stopping the clock at 1min 52.22sec to earn ten points for his team.

He then joined the 4x400 relay team, running the anchor leg as the school set a new record time of 3:18.92s. The relay team also included freshman Trevor Guay, juniors Nicholas Jacques and Joshua Ercolini before Minors played his part in the record time which is the third-best in the East region.

The Ravens, who finished fourth a year ago, chalked up points from 15 events to record their best finish of second. Southern Connecticut State (239 points) ran away with the NE10 team title, winning by more than 100 points. Franklin Pierce notched 114.5 to narrowly finish in second place ahead of host team Stonehill College, who placed third on 113.

The 4x400 title was the highlight of an impressive weekend for Jacques, who was a part of four different point-scoring performances and three school records for the Ravens. He also ran the anchor leg for the 4x100 relay team which set a new school record of 42.07 seconds as they placed second. The team of sophomore Jaris Neville, senior Cory Cataldo, freshman Gerald Leith and Jacques got the baton around the track in a time that ranks third in the East region.

Jacques also scored in a pair of sprint events. In the 200 he turned in a school-record time of 21.93 to finish fourth and earn five points for his team. In the 100 metres, he placed fifth in a time of 10.94 to tally four points.

The Ravens return to the track on Friday and Saturday when select members participate in the NEICAAA Championships, hosted by Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
