Review: Men’s track and field

Men’s track and field swiftly defeated Union College at home on Saturday, winning 13 out of 16 events en route to a 93–53 victory. 

In the field events, Max Memeger ’22 narrowly beat Union’s Dante Scott by two centimeters in the Long Jump. The men also dominated the Hammer Throw, with Daniel Brey ’22 (44.86), Nathaniel Klein ’21 (42.90) and James Caprio ’21 (41.24) capturing the first three spots, respectively. 

The 4x100 meter race was a rookie-heavy event, topped with a photo finish. Nadji Ngbokoli ’24 started the race, going toe-to-toe with Dante Scott before handing it off to Matthew Durst ’21. After racing the straight, Durst passed the baton to Finn Warner ’24 to take it around the second turn, finishing with Aaron Tobias ’24 nudging ahead of Union’s Andrew Fox by two tenths of a second for the win.

With the victory, the 4x100m squad now has their eyes set on a bigger goal: the school record.
