Here are some results from today's Seton hall Invitational at the
200-meter, five-lane Mondo track at the South orange campus:
David Bobb opened his post-graduate (Univ of Md-Baltimore) career
with an easy 6.25 win in the 55M dash. It was at least the 3rd year in a
row that Bobb has won this one. Another fine early-season performance in a
straightaway event was turned in by Seton Hall alumnus Brandon Gantt, who
took the 55H from Tyrone Watkins of Lincoln U. in 7.34. Gantt has been away
from the fort for a year due to injuries, but is back training under his
junior college coach, Mike Smart, who hdnles the East Orange Striders in
addition to his duties at Essex County College.
The ECC team, as usual in this meet, competed under the EOS colors.
Joyce Bates won the 55H from teammate selena Lewis in a hand-timed 7.7
after an AT 7.93 in her heat. Leis had a 7.96 in the heats. In 3rd was
Lnyka Brown, an all-American HS hurdler at Metuchen HS in NJ, who has
transferred to SH this year.
Bates also placed 2nd in the 55M dash to Tisha Franklin of LIU, who
Performances in the around-the-track events were routine for the
most part, the best being a 48.93 400M win for Seton Hall "grad" Thomas
Evans over former teammate Garfield Ellenwood. Both are actually finishing
up their studies at SH but with no more eligibility.
The Columbia HS 3200R team made its first appearance of the winter
under the mantle of the Cougar TC, its club alter ego. Veterans Dara
Crocker and Natalie Deffenbaugh joined newcomers Catherine Casey and Amina
Zohny in a walkover 9:49.7 win (no other women's team ran; the Columbia
girls ran in the men's race). Their first HS race will be Friday night in a
DMR at the Anderson Invitational at the 168th St. Armory. Temmate Bridgette
Ingram, one of the country's top young all-around prospects, won the HJ at
5-4 and was 3rd in the LJ at 18-1/4.
