Men’s and women’s track and field finished out strong at the 2024 MAAC Championships at the Armory in New York City on Feb. 24-25.

Senior Maura Jordan had a very successful weekend, just as she’d hoped. She said, “my goals were to make it to the final of the 400m and to place in the DMR, and I was able to achieve both of those goals during the meet.”

 Jordan placed first in the preliminary round for the 400m with a time of 57.81, qualifying her for the final and establishing a school record. 

In the finals for the 400m, Jordan took home third (57.20), breaking her previous program record from the day before. “Last year I did not make the finals in the 400m, and this year I got third place, so I am very happy with how I have improved over the past year,” she exclaimed. 

Jordan also placed second in the women’s distance medley relay with Kayla Schmidt, Jules Jones and Olivia Moran — their time was 12:03.81. 

Graduate student Marissa Silba and sophomore Jacqueline Appenheimer both qualified for the women’s one mile. Silba placed sixth (5:08.24) and Appenheimer in ninth (5:07.96). In the finals, Appenheimer and Silba both placed within the top 10. Appenheimer had a time of 5:06.26, placing seventh, while Silba took home ninth with a time of 5:11:60.

Moran claimed a top-10 spot for the women’s 3000m. She had a time of 9:56.23 placing her in fourth. Schmidt placed 13th overall in the 3000m with a time of 10:12.48.

For the men, senior Andrew Perreault came in fifth overall for the preliminary in the men’s one mile run with a time of 4:15.58. In the one mile final, Perrault took home fourth, finishing with a time of 4:09.18.

Graduate student Tom Appenheimer placed seventh in the men’s 5000-meter run with a time of 15:02.50.

In the 60m dash, sophomore Arthur Hartel beat his own school record, finishing at 7.55 seconds. His previous best was 7.62.

Finishing it out for the men, senior Ronan McDonald, sophomore Joe Pivarunas, graduate student Dominic Clementi and sophomore Braden Trent finished fifth in the men’s 4x800m relay with a time of 7:58.21.

Next up for the Griffs is the ECAC/IC4A Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Boston University Track & Tennis Center in Boston, MA, March 2-3.
