Men's 3,000m Steeplechase
In the first heat of the men's steeple, sophomore Peter Dorrell (Blacksburg, Va.) held in second throughout before retaking the lead with just over two laps left. Pete Asaro (Gloucester, Mass.) was close behind in fourth. Dorrell was passed with 300 to go, but held on for second in 9:05.39. Asaro picked up a runner to finish third in the heat at 9:08.63, and Robert Sagar (Alexandria, Va.) held off his twin brother, Matt from VMI, to finish 11th in the heat at 9:33.58. Overall, Dorrell and Asaro were 13th and 14th, with Sagar coming in 24th.

In the second heat, Liam Anastasia-Murphy (Gloucester, Mass.) went right to the front from the gun, and settled in the lead. He continued to hold the lead through the first four and a half laps, running a steady pace before ceding the work load to Kigens of Liberty over the final barrier with 900m to go. He tucked into second through the penultimate lap, and made his final move with 240 meters left, before tripping on the water barrier. He recovered admirably, and closed the final 200 in what was still one of, if not the, fastest sprint of the heat to take eighth and earn All-East honors in 8:58.70, a career-fast by seven seconds. He is the 10th runner in school history to break nine minutes in the steeple, and ranks eighth all-time at the College ahead of older brother Sean Anastasia-Murphy.
