The women’s and men’s track teams competed at the Terrier Classic at Boston University on Friday and Saturday, and multiple athletes posted stellar times.

On the women’s side, junior Mary Kate Kenny topped her own school record for the second time, finishing the 60-meter run in 7.78 seconds.

The time beat her previous record of 7.79, which she set at the NYC Gotham Cup last week.
For the men, seven runners registered IC4A-caliber times and 10 recorded season-highs.

Notable contributions included freshman Anthony Misko’s fifth-place finish and season-high in the 500-meter dash (1:04.47), junior Sean Phillips’ fifth-place mark and career-high in the 1,000-meter run (2:27.43), senior Thomas Slattery’s 32nd-place crossed and career-best in the 3,000-meter run (8:22.95), senior Louis Santelli’s IC4A-qualifying 15th-place finish in the 800-meter run (1:51.22) and senior Brian Cook’s 39th-place mile time (4:11.41).

Slattery, who finished in an impressive time, said he wants to “break out of the pack in bigger meets and grab more impressive times [at] the national level.”
“I’m not the only one who has that goal,” said Slattery. “It’s been a pleasure training with a group with a similar mindset.”

In relays, the men’s 4×400 ‘A’ team rolled to a fourth-place and IC4A-qualifying time of 3:18.01, while the women’s distance medley relay squad finished ninth with an ECAC-qualifying and season-high time of 12:05.36.

Junior Aidan Moroz and senior Jennifer Boerke posted fifth and 13th-place finishes in the 500-meter dash in 1:16.82 and 1:17.89, respectively. Kenny and freshman Kathryn Kelly placed 11th and 17th in the 200-meter dash in 25.09 and 25.47 seconds, respectively. Junior Kate McCormack finished 16th in the 1000-meter run in 2:57.04.

Fordham Track will be back in action this Thursday, Feb. 1 at the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex in Staten Island, New York, when it competes in the Metropolitan Championships.
