The William and Mary men's track and field team braved the snow in New York City on Friday night to brew up a storm of its own inside the Armory.  Competing at the Lafayette/Rider Winter Games, the Tribe came up with an IC4A qualification and two new entries on the school record books, including the freshman record at 200m.

Complete Results

200m Dash
That freshman record came courtesy of Bob Smutsky (Dillsburg, Pa.), who ran 22.57 to finish second overall and match his time at Navy two weeks ago exactly.  It was the ninth-fastest time ever run indoors for W&M, and ranks Smutsky second all-time behind only school-record holder Jay Cunningham '93.

5,000m Run
In the 5,000m, junior Rad Gunzenhauser (Pittsburgh, Pa.) re-qualified himself for the IC4A 5,000m after running 14:32.90 for fourth place.  It was his second-fastest 5,000m indoors, behind his performance at the IC4A Championships last year.

500m Dash
Junior Mark Moran (McLean, Va.) ran a lifetime-best in the 500m, timing 1:05.39 for fifth-place overall.  It was the 16th-fastest ever run for the Tribe, and ranks Moran 10th in school history, fastest since Chris Wilber '03 in 2001.

Pole Vault
Freshman Austin Vegas (Kernersville, N.C.) was second overall in the pole vault, clearing the bar at a height of 4.65 meters (15-3).  Vegas is already qualified for the IC4A Championships in the event, after he jumped 4.80m (15-9) two weeks ago at George Mason.

1,000m Run
In the 1,000m, freshman Ricky Cappetta (Stafford, Va.) is just about two seconds behind the freshman record after running 2:30.48 for third place.  Junior David Gunnerson (Yorktown, Va.) was right behind him, finishing fourth in 2:31.58.

High Jump
Senior Ben Katz (Manakin-Sabot, Va.) was third overall in the high jump, jumping 1.94m (6-4.25).

Shot Put
Freshman Taylor Frenia (Virginia Beach, Va.) was just less than an inch shy of his personal-best in the shot put, taking fourth in the event with a put of 14.93m (48-11.75).

William and Mary is back in action next weekend, competing at the Virginia Tech Challenge on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16.
