Hopkins Competes at Father Diamond Invitational
FAIRFAX, VA- The Johns Hopkins men’s indoor track & field team was back in action Saturday, competing at the Father Diamond Invitational hosted by George Mason University in Fairfax, VA.
Team scoring was only kept for Division I squads, but the Blue Jays had a number of quality individual performances.
Andrew Bartnett won the pole vault event, clearing 4.65m. Barnett, a junior, was the runner-up at last year’s NCAA Championships.
Other highlights for Hopkins included Scott Pourshalchi’s sixth-place finish in the one mile run. Pourshalchi crossed the finish line in 4:26.47, a little more than three seconds after George Mason’s Steven Flynn, who won the event.
Louis Levine placed fifth out of 40 participants in the 3,000 meter run, finishing in 8:54.64. Ryan Schwartz (seventh), John McMullin (ninth) and Schaffer Ochstein (10th) also finished in the top 10 in the event.
The Blue Jays return to action on January 22, when the squad heads to Staten Island to compete in the NYC Gotham Cup.
