NCAA Weekend Review – Goose goes sub-4

mitchgoose

Mitch Goose joined Rich Peters, Chris O’Hare and David McCarthy as the fourth British/Irish athlete under 4:00 for the mile this indoor season. Goose soloed his way to a 3:59.26 mile at the Armory with his nearest challenger 13 seconds adrift.  In doing so, he set a new Metro Atlantic Conference record previously held by Richard Kiplagat at 4:02. He remains second in the school’s all-time list behind Kiplagat and such is the standard this year, his time only places him 20th on the NCAA descending order list.

In the same meet, Iona’s Jake Byrne, Craig Murphy and Hollie Rowland all went under previous meet records in placing 1st, 2nd and 2nd respectively in the 5000m.

In the America East conference, Rich Peters went under 4:00 again to win the men’s mile.  Freshman Stuart Ross came second to 3:56 miler Erik van Ingen in the 800m.

In the Big East, Matthew Graham placed 6th in the 5000m, with Lee Carey 12th. Holly Knight’s first taste of the Big East, after transferring from Auburn, finished with a 4th place and 9th place finished in the 5000m and 3000m.

David McCarthy anchored his Providence Friar’s team DMR to a win with a 3:57.9 anchor leg over a competitive Georgetown team, featuring Toby Ulm, on Saturday. McCarthy returned on Sunday to place 1st in the 3000m with a new Big East record of 7:57 in easy fashion. In breaking Mark Carroll’s record of 8:01, McCarthy closed in 1:59. Matthew Graham and Shane Quinn finished in 8th and 4th (PB) in the same race.

There were also good runs for Matt Clowes and James Mee in DII.
