COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – The Gustavus men’s track and field team competed at the CSB-SJU Invitational Saturday at the Donald McNeely Spectrum.

“We were a little banged up today, some with injuries and others with illness, which kept a few out of the competition today,” Head Coach Dale Bahr said.

A pair of first place finishes highlighted the day for the Gusties. The 4×200-meter relay team of Brandon Govan (Fy., San Antonio, Texas), Josh Curtis (Fy., Houston, Texas), Dan Trentacoste (So., Orland Park, Ill.) and Jack Blaney (Fy., Lake Elmo, Minn.) crossed the line first in 1:34.08. Ed Remine (Jr., Mantorville, Minn.) also took home a gold in the 400-meter with a time of 51.61. His brother, Sam ReMine (Jr., Mantorville, Minn.), was close behind in second at 51.80.

Sean O’Connell (Jr., St. Peter, Minn.) took silver in the 200-meter with a time of 23.57. Thomas Knobbe (Jr., Decorah, Iowa) also posted a second place finish with a time of 8:40.88 in the 3000-meter. Paul Nordquist (Sr., Edina, Minn.) was Knobbe’s running mate, taking third in 8:46.04. Sam Fischer (Sr., Sauk Centre, Minn.) garnered a silver in the weight throw with a distance of 54-2.5. The 4×400-meter relay team of O’Connell, ReMine, ReMine and Alex Fredrickson (Jr., Victoria, Minn.) took second, clocking in at 3:29.69. Nelson Finne (Fy., Elgin, Minn.), Emmett Haberman (So., Coon Rapids, Minn.) and Michael Hensch (Fy., North Branch, Minn.) also reached the podium, each taking third in their respective events – Finne in the high jump, clearing 5-5.75, Haberman in the 5000-meter, crossing the line in 16:48.55, and Hensch in the shot put with a toss of 46-5.5.

Other notable finishes include:

Curtis – fourth in the long jump (20-4.25) and fifth in the 60-meter (7.32)

Robert Nelson (Fy., Woodbury, Minn.) – fourth in the mile run (4:37.32)

Fischer – fifth in the shot put (43-9.75)

Max Bauer (Fy., Eagan, Minn.) – sixth in the 800-meter (2:09.46)

Ed Remine – sixth in the 60-meter hurdles (10.10)

Will Neuenfeldt (Jr., Cottage Grove, Minn.) – seventh in the weight throw (45-4.25) and eighth in the shot put (42-6)

Griffin Spier (Sr., Sartell, Minn.) – eighth in the triple jump (38-7.5)

“Josh Curtis had a very good performance overall, and Michael Hensch continues to improve each week,” Bahr said. “He is learning the spin and improved his throw by a foot-and-a-half.

“Over the next week we just need to get healthy and sharpen up a bit. I’m a little frustrated with the illnesses and injuries, but proud of those that had good performances today.”

Gustavus returns to the track next Friday at Macalester for its final tune-up before the MIAC Championships held March 3-5.
