GBTC Invite 2019 Cancelled due to Weather!

Unfortunately, but understandably, Harvard University for only the second time since 1980 has cancelled the GBTC Invitational on Sunday January 20th 2019. Safety is obviously a top priority for Harvard and for GBTC, and considering the weather conditions Harvard felt compelled to close the facilities. The potential ice in this storm during and after the track meet is presenting significant concern.

Sincerely,
-Your Meet Director, David Callum

USATF National and New England Championships

Although GBTC still sets its sights on the BU Last Chance meet this weekend, and the masters look ahead to their Nationals in mid-March, we closed out February on top!

In Albuquerque, New Mexico there were some serious monster throws from some of the best in the world including a USATF National meet record in the men’s shot put.  Among the competitors our own Nate Hunter seeded 14th heading into the national shot put event moved up three spots to finish 11th with his 60ft 1in heave a mere quarter of an inch off his season best, while in the weight throw Lisa Wilson made her way into the finals to finish 8th overall!

Locally, at our scored New England association championship, GBTC men continued the winning tradition scooping up 42 points to top NBB by 18points. On the women’s side, thanks to the ladies of the DMR, including our 7 females scoring points, we once again secured first place by a mere ONE point over NBB, 26 to 25!

Scorers include:
Women:
Josette Pierre-Louis (60, 400), Sara O’Brien (400, dmr), Alex Tanner (800), Christiana Gallagher (800, dmr), Liz Ryan (3k, dmr), Medena Knespl (dmr), and Jessica Reid (SP).
MEN:
Andre Reid (SP), Nicholas Ricciardi (60h, LJ), Jacob Evanter (60h, 200), Craig Bennett (200, 400, 4×4), Alex Engel (400, 4×4), Brian Robbins (800), Joe Mullen (PREP in 5k), Dave Cahill (4×4), Caleb Evanter (4×4), Chris Blondin (dmr), Andrew Chalmers (dmr), Michael Carlone (dmr), Daniel Lewis (dmr).

Highlights also include several season bests and overall PRs! Among them Josette’s first sub-60 post birth(x2), Sara O’Brien’s first open 400 and 3rd quarter of the season as a breast cancer survivor, Caleb Evanter’s mile PR, Women’s victory in the DMR, Craig’s win in the 200, Alex’s win in the 400, and the Men’s victory in the 4×440.

Lisa Wilson Stamps Ticket to USATF Nationals

Lisa Wilson qualifies for her first USATF National competition, training with the weight this 2014 indoor season in preparation for the hammer outdoors!

In the final day of qualifying, Lisa crushed the old club record by over 3-meters with her 20.05m throw, well past the 19.50 standard needed to qualify.

Lisa joins Nate Hunter as the two athletes representing GBTC in New Mexico next weekend! Nate has twice this season broken his own Shot Put club record.

Other PRs achieved today at BU’s Scarlet and White include Alex Engel in the 800 (1:53.35), as well as Caleb Evanter zooming past the 2-min barrier in 1:59.09, Dave Cahill with a season best 2:01.77, while Mike Giberti had a 6-second PR in the 3k, and new member UML-grad Craig Bennett cruising to 3rd in the 400m.
