The USATF New England Outdoor Track and Field Championship meet was held Sunday, June 23 at Regis College in Weston, MA. There was a great turnout for the meet this year, which saw stellar performances from local athletes.
Greater Boston Track Club (GBTC) took both the men’s and women’s open team titles. New Balance Boston and Dare 2 Dream were second and third place respectively on the men’s side. For women’s results, FAST Track came in second with New Balance Boston taking third.
In addition to the team results, there were several individual performances of note. On the men’s side, GBTC’s Nate Hunter recorded a throw of 18.49 m. in the shot put. Teammate Alex Angel completed the 400 m. race in 48.76 seconds, and in the same event, Daniel Stahelski of Western Mass Alliance came through in 49.41 seconds. Patriot Pole Vault’s Brad Lawrence cleared 5.00 m. in the pole vault and Alix Durand of Dare 2 Dream sprinted through the 200 m. race in a speedy 22.35 seconds.
The women’s results were just as impressive. In the 3,000 m. race, New Balance Boston led the way with teammates Diana Davis (1) and Sydney Fitzpatrick (2) both running 10:10. Also on the track, we had Dacia Taylor of GBTC who took the 100 m. race in 12.55 seconds. Her teammate Lisa Wilson recorded a 55.08 m. throw in the hammer.

In the 60-64 yearold age group for men’s javelin, Edward Hearn took the win with a 47.49 m. throw.

Yesterday, Murphy ran 10:25.96 in the Women’s 3000m Steeplechase. The womens’ Grand Prix scores can still change from performances at this Sunday’s USATF NE Championship.
David Chorney (BAA) still leads the men’s Outdoor Grand Prix with the remaining USATF NE Championship capstone performance to be completed on Sunday. Five New England men are in the running for the win, which will be determined at Regis.
Grand Prix sign up and performance submission deadline is June 22 at 12p: sign-up now!
The 2013 Outdoor Grand Prix is coming to an interesting and exciting finish.
On the men’s side, the top five participants are separated by less than 200 points. The final and required capstone performance at the USATF NE Outdoor Championships (or USATF National Championships) will determine the winner and recipient of the $300 prize money.
On the women’s side, several of the top scorers have obtained a capstone performance via the USATF NE 10k Track Championship event hosted at the New Balance Boston Twilight Meet #2. However, any of those women can better their score by competing on Sunday at the NE Championship meet and perform higher. Additionally, any woman who has only three performances and not yet a capstone performance, will need to complete their score by competing at the NE Championships (or the USATF National Championships).
Come to the meet on Sunday June 23rd at Regis College in Weston to watch the final results unfold!
