BOSTON – In their first distance medley relay race of the 2019 indoor season, Tufts' foursome combined on a 12:01.74 time that is ranked third nationally Friday at the New England Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center.
The Jumbos were fourth out of 13 teams in the race, which included Division I, II and III relays. Tufts was the only DIII team in the field and finished 0.03 behind third-place Northeastern (12:01.71) from Division I.
The mark is faster than the 12:04.56 time that the Jumbo DMR ran to place 10th at the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships last March. Toth and Gake were both a part of that relay.
The five points earned by the fourth-place finish put Tufts in 14th place at the meet after one day.
The Jumbos will continue their weekend at home with the Cupid Challenge on Saturday.
