Men Place in Top 10, Multiple Women Make All-Time List at Bill Butler Invite

Delaware Club Track traveled to West Chester University to begin its first of three meets in a three week stretch at the Bill Butler Invitational. 

The men took home sixth place as a team with 33 points out of a 13 team field. The women saw multiple runners score along with two sprinters earning their way onto the team all-time lists.

The fellas were led by Alex Horgan who continued his dominance across the track in the 5,000-meter run.  Horgan put nearly a minute between him and the rest of the field and finished with a time of 15:17.60. The time moves Horgan into sixth place all-time, surpassing Aidan Galasso. Senior Paul Filipow also secured points for Delaware in the event taking sixth place in 16:34.08.

In the mid-distance events, freshman Mike Anderson grabbed three points for the Hens with a time of 2:00.07. The time puts Anderson at fifth all-time in the 800-meters. Ryan Wallace and Jack Murphy also found success in the technical events for the Hens with Wallace placing fourth in the 110-meter hurdles (16.08) and Murphy fifth in javelin (42.60m). Wallace now sits second all-time in the hurdles, with Murphy fourth all-time. 

For the ladies, two sprinters found their way onto the all-time record lists in the 400-meter and 100-meter dashes. Eli Manning’s time of 1:05.42 puts her fourth all-time in the event. Manning found her name on the all-time list in the event indoors over the winter. 

Sam Radinsky’s time in the 100-meter dash (14.37) earned her the spot of eighth all-time. Similar to Manning, Radinsky found her way onto the all-time lists during indoor track in both the 60-meter and 200-meter dashes.

In the distance events, Kendra Cutler and Allison Einig build upon their success from NIRCA Nationals. Cutler placed once again in the top ten in steeplechase. Cutler finished with a time of 13:46.60 and placed sixth. Allison Einig took home another three points for the women in the 1500-meter run. Einig’s time of 5:17.54 put her in sixth in the event.

Delaware will travel to College Park next weekend to compete in the Terrapin Invitational, hosted by Maryland’s club running team.
