Senior David McCarthy (Waterford, Ireland), a First-Team All-American last winter, cruised to victory in the 3000-meters. His time of 7:56.76 is the fastest in the nation thus far this season and is just over three seconds shy of his p.r.
Meanwhile, classmate Julian Matthews, a Second-Team All-American last year in both indoor and outdoor track, finished the 800-meters in 1:50.83, just .61 seconds off of his best time at the distance.
Other winners included sophomore Nik Andrews (Clarksburg, Mass.), who took first in the 400-meters with a 50.80, and freshman Phelan McCormack (Pearl River, N.Y.), who crossed ahead in the 800 with a clocking of 1:59.18.
Also of note was junior Alex Wallace (Waipukarau, New Zealand), who was third in the 3000 with an 8:20.09, and freshman Shane Quinn (Waterford, Ireland) who opened his indoor campaign with a 4:11 in the mile run. Junior Nik Rebovich (New Hartford, N.Y.) ran a 1:54.69 in the 800-meters. All three qualified for the BIG EAST Championships with their efforts.
The Friars return to action next Saturday, January 28 at the Terrier Invitational at Boston University.
