BOSTON – The Boston College track & field teams concluded the 2012 ACC Indoor Championship on Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Center. Graduate Caroline King and senior Jillian King won silver medals in the 800m and 3,000m, respectively, helping the women total 26 point to take 10th place, while the men scored a 2.5 points for 12th place (women’s release).
The men’s 4x400m contingent of Joseph Stuart, Connor O’Neill, Jack Hennessy and Kellen MacDonald took seventh place in 3:17.70, marking the first time Boston College had ever scored at the conference meet in the 1600m relay. Stuart went out of the blocks in 50.01, passing to O’Neill for a 49.52 clip. Sitting in third of the second heat, Hennessy maneuvered a 49.54 quarter before passing the baton to MacDonald who exploded for a 48.78 anchor leg. The cumulative time goes down as the fourth fastest indoor mark in Eagles history, the swiftest since 1996.
Junior Louis Serafini commanded a superb 3,000-meter race after anchoring the men in the distance medley on Friday. The Niskayuna, N.Y. blazed his way to a 20-second personal record time of 8:23.81 for 10th in heat one. The time marked the Eagle’s third straight IC4A qualifier of the season. A trio of freshman followed their teammate in the run: Richard Lucas (8:43.51), Collin Fedor (8:44.49) and Jose Estevez (9:01.20).
