Release:   05/18/2014

PRINCETON, N.J. – The Bucknell track and field team kept the momentum rolling on the second day of the 2014 ECAC/IC4A Championships, hosted by Princeton at the Weaver Track and Field Stadium, advancing two athletes to Sunday’s finals in their respective events. Ten Bison competed in individual events on the second day of competition, and three different relay squads took to the track in another strong day of performances for the program.

Juniors Christian Lupica and Andrew Garcia-Garrison highlighted the action on the second day of the meet, both advancing to the finals in their events. Lupica, the 2014 Patriot League Track Athlete of the Meet, cruised through the prelims and semis of the 110m hurdles, turning in the second-fastest time among the eight competitors headed to Sunday’s final. The junior raced to a time of 14.17 in the prelims and dropped down to 13.94 in the semis, just one one-hundredth off of his own school record in the event.

Garcia-Garrison had an outstanding performance in the 1500m event, winning his heat with a personal-best time of 3:48.45. The mark made him the eighth-best performer in the event in school history and earned him the fourth seed in Sunday’s event finals.

The Bison also turned in two additional program top-ten marks on Saturday with strong races in the 800m and the men’s 4x400m relay. Junior Alex Jagelsky became Bucknell’s fifth-best all-time performer in the 800m with his time of 1:50.94, while the relay squad of junior Kevin Tapper, senior Jacob Eaton Hall, Jagelsky and Lupica finished in a time of 3:11.78, the second-fastest ever turned in by a Bucknell quartet.

The 2014 ECAC/IC4A Championships will conclude on Sunday with competition set to begin at 9:00 a.m.
