Men’s track and field improved their record to 2–0 on Saturday, beating Hamilton College, 86–54, at home on Dragone Field. 

Middlebury swept the jumping events, winning both the long jump and high jump with a staggering 6.81 meters from Max Memeger ’21 and 1.79 meters by Francis Price ’22

Arden Coleman ’21 also snatched first place in the 100-meter, beating Hamilton’s Joshua Harmsen by three-tenths of a second with a winning time of 11.26 seconds. 

Max Cluss ’23 won the 800 for the Panthers, finishing in 1:54.26, while Quinlan McGaugh ’22 took first in the 1500 in 3:58.24. 

In the midst of the win, many were reminiscent as this was their last time competing on Dragone Field. The team will finish off their spring season at Williams College next weekend. Bett Sorbo ’24 is looking forward to the last meet of the season, hoping to end it on a good note. “Training this week won’t be too different than the last few weeks. It’s just a matter of continuing to hone in on the things that have already led to our success. Right now, we have the potential to make a serious impression at Williams.” Sorbo said. 

The meet is scheduled for Saturday, May 15 at 11 a.m.
