The men's track team competed well with several outstanding performances last Sunday at the Greater Boston Track Club Invitational held at Harvard University.

The open race provided an opportunity for post-collegiate runners, club runners, and college runners to compete on the fast Harvard track.

When it came to individual performances, head coach Peter Slovenski noted the ferocity of Bowdoin's athletes.

"Our runners showed a lot of courage and intelligence in their races. They made good moves, and reached down deep in the final laps," he said. "They took advantage of the high level of competition and the fast track."

Sam Seekins '14 put in a strong performance and achieved a personal best time. After remaining close with the pack at the front and then falling behind, Seekins picked it up and remained with the pack until the final 400-meter. He took fourth in the invitational section with an impressive time of 8:36.7.

Seeded in the 800, Brett Stein '12 remained persistent. Starting out in third place for two laps, he took the competition in the final lap. Stein won the non-invitational 400-meter race with a time of 1:57.63 faring well against competitors from Brandeis and UMass-Lowell.

Competing against club teams, Matt Gamache '13 won the non-invitational 400-meter with a time of 50.98.

On the final lap of the mile, Matt Hillard '12 passed two runners and won the non-invitational competition in the mile. Hillard achieved a personal best time of 4:18.

Looking ahead to the upcoming home meet, Slovenski shared his insight into the race. The meet will host some of the strongest teams in New England, including local rival Colby College.

"Springfield is deep in the sprint and jump events and Tufts matches us very well in the middle and long distance races," said Slovenski. "Those two teams are among the top five in New England. There will be a lot of exciting competition on the track and in the field," he added.

Men's track will race against Tufts, Springfield and Colby College on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at Farley Field House.
