NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s track and field team took third place out of seven teams at Carleton’s Meet of the Hearts on Saturday.

“The men had a very strong showing again,” Head Coach Dale Bahr said. “We are in mid-season form right now and seeing where everybody is at within the conference. So we’re looking to continue to push these guys through this part of the season. We ran a lot of people in a bunch of different events to see where they fall.”

The Gusties claimed three victories on the day. The 4×200 meter relay took first in 1:32.79, Sam ReMine (Jr., Mantorville, Minn.) crossed the finish line first in the 400-meter with a time of 51.35, and Sam Fischer (Sr., Sauk Centre, Minn.) had the best toss in the weight throw with a distance of 16.22 meters.

Other notable top-five finishes include:

4×400 meter relay – second (8:58.75)

Carston Dammann (Jr., Lake City, Minn.) – third in the one mile (4:29.14)

Bennet Woltjer (Sr., Kandiyohi, Minn.) – third in the long jump (6.16 m) and fifth in the high jump (1.78 m)

Marcus Speca (Sr., Minnetonka, Minn.) – fourth in the 3000-meter (9:06.25, personal record)

Thomas Knobbe (Jr., Decorah, Iowa) – fourth in the 800-meter (1:59.45)

Ed ReMine (Jr., Mantorville, Minn.) – fifth in the 55-meter hurdles (8.71)

Josh Curtis (Fy., Houston, Texas) – fifth in the 55-meter dash (6.78)

Alex Fredrickson (Jr., Victoria, Minn.) – fifth in the 600-meter (1:25.16)

David Hoien (Jr., South Haven, Minn.) – fifth in the pole vault (4.12 m)

Tyler Johnson (Fy., South St. Paul, Minn.) – fifth in the triple jump (11.40 m)

“It’s really good to see the improvement from week to week,” Bahr said. “The next couple weeks we are going to fine tune everybody at Saint John’s and Macalester and hope we get some people qualified for the conference meet. We want to compete our best when it matters the most at the end of the season.”

Gustavus returns to the track next Saturday at Saint John’s.
