Weekend Review – Peters Impresses & more


Big East, Ivy League and more

Weekend past saw the end of the ‘regular season’ in NCAA track before Conference, Regionals and Nationals come to prominence. For many athletes it was a chance to hit the regional mark before Conference. While many took advantage of a last tune-up, or regional qualification attempt, others were competing in their Conference Champs. The majority of Conferences will take place next weekend, but several occur a few weeks early, with ACCs always a fortnight before the main show. This week it was the turn of Big East, Ivy League, Metro and American East from a British and Irish perspective.

So, here you have it. For those athletes competing in their Conference Champs, their regional ranking will be included with all others next week. Killian Barry and Nick Miller both threw their way to wins in Texas Tech and Arkansas meets respectively, and Hollie Knight complete the unenviable 10,000/5,000 double in the Big East along with Matthew Graham taking a bronze in the chase, but performance of the week goes to BU’s Rich Peters who front ran a 3:45 to take the American East 1500m title. The 3:57 man took silver in NCAA Indoors, behind Tulsa’s Chris O’Hare, but has remained quiet outdoors with only a 1:51 800m and sub 14 5000m to his name. He therefore qualified for Regionals in his first attempt and looked easy doing so*.

(*With the American East Conference a week earlier than most, he would have had another week to find the qualifier from somewhere.)
