Men's Track Breaks Two Records at A-10 Championship
4x800m and 400m records fall
AMHERST, Mass. - Two program records were broken and junior Chris Shaffer earned All-Conference honors in the 1,500-meter run as the George Washington men's outdoor track team competed at the Atlantic 10 Championship this weekend.
The first record fell on Saturday afternoon when junior Ed Delavergne broke the school record in the 400-meter dash. Delavergne logged a time of 51.51 for 22nd place, which was 0.49 seconds faster than teammate Sawyer Bilton's time from the Morgan State Legacy last spring.
Also on Saturday, senior Jordan Pantalone turned in a solid performance in the 3,000-meter steeplechase to conclude his career. Pantalone finished in 9:49.08 for 13th place.
On Sunday, junior Chris Shaffer's All-Conference performance paced two Colonials in the top ten of the 1500m. Shaffer took fourth overall in 3:50.48, ahead of sophomore Colin Wills who clinched 10th place in 3:57.48.
GW's 4x800m relay team combined to shatter the program record. The quartet of Shaffer, Jon Dooling, Colin Wills and Charles Arnold finished in 7:45.80 to take eighth place. The performance was a 37-second improvement on the previous record (8:22.97) from this spring's Colonial Relays.
Rounding out GW's entries Saturday were senior Andrew Weber in the 5,000-meter run (14th, 15:02.72) and the trio of Arnold (16th, 1:56.54), Bilton (22nd, 1:58.32) and freshman Jakob Coombes (23rd, 1:59.10 PR) in the 800-meter run.
