BALTIMORE (May 17, 2018) – On the second and final day of the ECAC Outdoor Championship Meet, USMMA senior Austin MacElrevey (Lewis, Del.) concluded his extraordinary career as the Individual Champion in the 1500 meter run. MacElrevey helped lead the Mariners to a 14th place team finish out of the 24 teams that scored at the event. Merchant Marine ended up with 26 points. Wesley College won the ECAC Championship with a score of 93 points, while Penn State-Behrend (81 points) and Penn State-Harrisburg (73 points) rounded out the top three.
MacElrevey crossed the finish line of the 1500m in first place with a time of 3:59.08 – less than a half-second ahead of PSU-Behrend sophomore Chris Drozynski, who was second in 3:59.55. This victory combined with his second-place finish in the 5000m on Wednesday, means MacElrevey finished the ECAC meet earning a team-best 18 points.
Freshman Ivan Goretoy (West Warwick, R.I.) had a pair of 10th place finishes for the Mariners on Thursday in the shot put [13.43m (44' 00.75")] and the discus [41.58m (136' 05")].
The rest of the Mariners' finishes from Thursday are listed below.
- Senior Ian Stoner (Glen Allen, Va.) came in 11th in the discus with a mark of 41.36 meters (135' 08")
- Senior Austin Haire (Ignacio, Colo.) placed 19th in the discus with a throw of 32.92 meters (108' 00")
