Men’s Track and Field

The University of Miami men’s track and field team competed at the Boston University St. Valentine’s Invite Saturday afternoon. Tim Harris ran 1:47.99 in the 800-meter run to break an 11-year-old school record. Harris was the top collegiate finisher and took second place overall.

Harris’ time was also an NCAA provisional mark, just .19 seconds off automatic qualification. That time also places Harris as the fastest ACC performer coming into this weekend, and would be the fourth fastest time in the country.

The race was the third straight this season in which Harris was the top collegiate finisher or the winner as he was coming off back-to-back victories at the University of North Carolina Fast Times meet and at the Florida Intercollegiate Open.

The previous record was 1:49.09, set on Feb. 5, 1995 by Ronald Thorne.

The Hurricanes compete again at the ACC championships Feb. 23 to 25 in Blacksburg, Va.

Equestrian

Last Saturday, the UM Equestrian Club held its fourth annual Intercollegiate Horse Show at Tropical Park in Miami, and despite difficult weather, the show went off without a hitch.

The hunt-seat competition was sponsored by Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) and ran in accordance with all their rules and regulations. A total of eleven teams from Florida, Georgia and South Carolina competed in Saturday’s show.

“As a team we did well, but the focus was really on making the show a success for everyone and ensuring that things went smoothly. When you are responsible for so much, it can be hard to focus on your own riding,” said senior Juli Diamond, who has been a member of the Equestrian Club since the Club Sports Expo her freshman year. The show turned out to be very successful, and in more ways than one. Senior Jaya Krutulis finished first in the w/t/c advanced category and qualified regionally while Kristina Moser finished first in the Alumni Flat. In addition to their individual accomplishments, the team completed a successful horseshow in spite of the weather, and even gained the attention of their club founder Caroline Buckley.

Caroline Buckley founded the UM Equestrian Club team in 1998 as a freshman and made the club the successful team that it is today during her four years at UM. Buckley flew in from Boston, Mass., where she is getting her MBA at Harvard University, to see the show and support the club’s new participants.
