BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – Cold and misty conditions could not prevent the Southern Vermont College outdoor track & field team from chalking up a number of school records on Saturday as the Mountaineers charted six new program bests at Bridgewater State University's Bears Invitational.
SVC added another six personal bests during the day while seeing its program register first-time entries in four disciplines.
Junior captain Marc Brandmeyer (Bennington, Vt.) wasted no time in qualifying for the Division III New England Championships as he posted a 9:56.48 in the men's 3000 meter steeplechase--coming well in under the standard of 10:10.00.
The Mountaineers continue their schedule next Saturday, April 1 at Fitchburg State University's Jim Sheehan Memorial.
