HAVERFORD, Pa. – The Haverford College men's outdoor track & field team split runners between the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton and the Widener Invitational on Friday evening. Greg Morgan finished the 1,500 meters at Princeton with a time of 3:52.99, good for 14th overall. The mark eclipses Morgan's Centennial Conference Athlete of the Week finish from a week ago. With results still rolling in from meets across the country, Morgan's time is currently the fourth best mark in Division III thus far in the 2018 campaign.

Dylan Gearinger crossed in 24th with a time of 3:55.52 in his initial foray into the outdoor 1,500 meter distance. Henry Woods finished 45th in 3:59.52.

In the unseeded competition, Jauregui-Volpe crossed the finish in 14:55.37, good for a seventh place overall finish. He was third amongst Division III entrants. The time was a personal best as the senior posted a 5,000 meter time under the 15-minute mark for the first time in his career. Herlihy was 16th overall in the event, finishing in a time in 15:20.63.

At Widener, James Stadler finished in ninth in the 5,000 meters with a time of 15:13.19. Matthew Willig was 15th in a career-best 15:18.45.
