Conley Leads Johns Hopkins to Fifth-Straight Centennial Title
COLLEGEVILLE, PA- The Johns Hopkins men's indoor track & field team won its fifth Centennial Conference championship in a row Sunday. The two-day event was hosted by Ursinus.
The Blue Jays scored 195 points, 11 more than second-place Haverford in the nine-team event. Ursinus (66), Gettysburg (65) and Franklin & Marshall (56) rounded out the top five.
Devin Conley was a big reason why the Jays took home another title as the senior scored a conference-record 4700 in the heptathlon.
Conley also finished fourth in the high jump (1.85m), third in the long jump (6.45m) and third in the pole vault (3.95m).
The Johns Hopkins 4X800m relay team of Tom Reinhart, Colton Takata, Sam Gottuso and Dominic Yared took home first place honors, crossing the finish line in 7:59.23, only three hundredths of a second in front of the second place squad from Haverford.
Trevor Holmgren (1:56.18), Yared (1:56.32) and Gottuso (1:56.87) had top-five finishes for Hopkins in the 800m, finishing in third, fourth and fifth respectively.
Hopkins will be back in action next weekend at the Tufts Last Chance Meet in Boston, the final meet before the NCAA Championships in Grinnell, Iowa on March 11 and 12.
