CHESTER, Pa. – Day 2 of the two-day Danny Curran Invitational at Widener University is in the books and Haverford College's outdoor men's track & field team weathered the storm, literally, Saturday, posting several top-notch performances between the rain drops and puddles.
Senior Gebby Keny raced to a first-place finish in the 800-meter run, posting a winning time of 1 minute, 57.07 seconds. Teammate Soren Rasmussen also cracked the top eight with a sixth-place time of 1:59.94.
Earlier Saturday the tandem of Charlie Marquardt and Christopher Stadler earned top-eight finishes in the 1,500 with outdoor personal bests. Marquardt clocked a winning time of 3:52.83 while Stadler was seventh (3:57.88) a few steps behind.
Gibby Graves, fresh off Friday's victory in the triple jump, continued his strong weekend with a fourth in the high jump (1.83 meters/6 feet, 0 inches) and a fifth in the long jump (6.03/19-9.5). Teammate Jeffrey Ainsley recorded a fourth-place leap (6.09/19-11.75) in the long jump.
Haverford continues the early portion of its outdoor schedule on April 4-5 with a trip to Williamsburg, Va., to compete in the Colonial Relays.
